Frequently asked questions

How are you paid?

When an estate is wound up it is necessary to collect in all the assets and pay off all the liabilities, such as outstanding energy bills, care home fees, funeral expenses, inheritance tax etc.

Once all the assets are collected and all the liabilities are paid the estate can be distributed to the beneficiaries.

Our fee is a liability of the estate and is paid by our client from the estate before the distribution is made.
