Prices For Our Wills And Probate Services

Why Choose Bartletts Solicitors?

A Premium Service At Competitive Fixed Fees


Our firm has years of experience in wills, trusts and probate matters in the city of Liverpool and across Merseyside.

We offer a no obligation quotation, competitive fixed fees and home visits.

Our service is different from 'online' companies and most local firms. Your case will be handled from start to finish by Louise Nelson, a solicitor with 39 years experience in these matters. Louise is assisted by Fran Cartwright, a talented solicitor specialising in this area of law. Included in the fixed fee is a face-to-face meeting at our Liverpool City Centre offices.

Customer service is very important to us. John Bartlett has been managing the firm for over 40 years and takes customer satisfaction very seriously.

Our service has always been focused on truly understanding our clients and their wishes. Under normal circumstances, the best way to do this is via a face-to-face meeting in our offices or your home.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, your personal welfare and safety is our number one priority. For this reason, clients can now access all our services by phone, email and video conferencing (e.g. Skype) without the need to visit our offices or meet your solicitor in person.

Administration Of An Estate (Uncontested)

Our charges are calculated namely by reference to the time spent by the fee earner dealing with the matter. The charge rate will not exceed £200 per hour plus VAT. The rate of VAT is 20%. In estate administration matters it is often difficult to estimate how many hours of work will be necessary to complete the matter. We therefore tend to say that our fee will not exceed 2% of the gross estate. Please note that this does not mean that we will charge 2%, but it simply helps to mention this percentage as it helps us to prepare a fee that is fair and proportionate having regard to the size of the estate. We always take into consideration various factors, such as the difficulty of the work undertaken and the importance of the work to the client. We would always send our proposed fee to you for your approval before submitting the same.
