Biddulph & Turley offer a discounted fee for wills when you provide us with relevant information prior to making an appointment with us. Please contact our offices and request a “wills instruction sheet”.
In probate matters we offer capped legal fees, so that you will know exactly what our services will cost. Please phone us and ask for a ‘comparison of fees’ that provides information about our likely fees and what a corporate trustee would charge.
