For simple wills our standard hourly charge out rate is £110 per hour.  Routine telephone calls and outgoing letters and emails are charged at £11 each, incoming emails and letters are charged at £6 each. VAT is also payable where applicable. We do not charge for emails forwarded to you without comments attached. For more complex wills our fees are 50% higher.


For most simple wills we will usually be able to give a firm estimate:

  • Single wills are usually charged at £50-£90 (plus VAT)*

  • Mirror (joint) wills are usually charged at £90-£150 (plus VAT), i.e. £45-75 (plus VAT) each*

Prices vary depending on the contents of your will. Get in touch for a no obligation estimate.

Things that to many people seem simple but may increase the costs of the will substantially include:

  • Leaving property to someone for their lifetime and then on their death the property is to be sold and the proceeds split between named beneficiaries.

  • Wanting the will to deal with property abroad.

  • Leaving a specific house or flat with provisions if it is sold.
