We are sad to announce the death of Denise Woodward, Consultant Solicitor, on 22nd April 2023.

Denise was a valued member of our Family Law Team and a hugely popular member of staff. Denise will be sorely missed by all her work colleagues and the legal fraternity in Chester and beyond.

Darlene Storrar, Managing Partner, says:

"Denise was an excellent Family Law Solicitor and a highly valued member of our team. Denise was dedicated to her work and her many clients and we will miss her enormously. Denise was always cheerful and engaging. Our thoughts are with her large supportive family at this very sad time."

Every estate differs and it is difficult to be precise about our charges but we aim, here to give you an illustration of our costs.  We will give you a more detailed letter of engagement when we start acting for you.

Our wills and probate team estimate to fees you will likely need to pay follow.

Unless otherwise stated all fees include VAT at the current standard rate of 20%.

Advice and preparation of a Will

When we discuss your Will with you we prefer to discuss this face to face, or if you live some distance away, by phone conferencing.

Our aim is to tailor your Will to your particular requirements and to give you advice on the best ways to achieve your goals.

  • For one individual preparing a Will we charge £480.00 (inc. VAT)
  • For a couple preparing Wills together we charge £600.00 (inc. VAT)
  • Codicil to an existing Will – £360.00 (inc. VAT)

The costs given above do not include the following, but we can advise you of these and give you an estimate of our additional charges should these be suitable for your needs

  • Additional trust structures within your Will
  • Inheritance tax planning
  • Severing the joint tenancy of a property or other related property matters
  • Advice on Lasting Powers of Attorney – including registration with the Office of the Public Guardian.  We are happy to provide separate cost information for this transaction.

Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA)

If we are also drafting and registering Lasting Powers of Attorney for your Property & Financial affairs and for your Health & Welfare our fees are:

  • £600.00 (inc. VAT) for one
  • £860.00 (inc. VAT) for two
  • £1,320.00 (inc. VAT) for four LPAs (both types for two clients)

For each Lasting Power of Attorney the court charges a fee of £82.00. However if your income is less than £12,000.00 per person the court will charge £41.00 per application, we need to complete additional forms to demonstrate this.

These costs also do not include travel time and costs to come and see you, should you require a home visit.  Again we will be pleased to give you an estimate of these fees, if this service is needed.
