This will depend on the type of claim, the complexity of the deceased’s will and family relationships, whether other beneficiaries or family members are applying for insurance benefits, the attitude of the executor and many other considerations.
Before you decide to make a claim, we will discuss what will be involved and provide an estimate of the likely costs. We will also discuss how we will charge for our services.
Our costs will be reasonable – we will discuss them with you in detail before you instruct us to act on your behalf and will enter into a Costs Agreement with you. We strongly recommend you seek independent legal advice about the Costs Agreement before you sign it.
If we think your claim has reasonable prospects of success, we may consider acting on a deferred payment basis. This means we will only charge you for our professional fees when your claim is finalised.
