At KWW, we offer a professional service delivered by highly trained lawyers and solicitors with real expertise. Of course, you can find pretty much anything cheaper online if that’s the way you want to go. But what if it goes wrong, as it so often does? The legal sector is awash with stories of wills that were poorly drawn up by an internet firm or do-it-yourself divorces that led to genuine hardship.
We know the issue of costs is a sensitive one, which is why we have introduced a range of fixed-price services where clients know exactly what they will pay for a standard service, with the ability to top up where the service becomes less standard and more tailor-made. We will always give you a good idea of your likely costs up front, and we’ll keep you updated on costs throughout your matter so there are no nasty surprises at the end.
Typically, our non-fixed price charges are based on the time spent dealing with a matter. Time spent will include meetings with you and perhaps others, considering, preparing and working on papers, correspondence and making and receiving telephone calls. For details of our hourly rates, please call us on 0208 979 1131 and ask to speak to the specialist you are looking to engage. You can see details of our team here.
The fee we give our client at the outset is the cost they need to pay. We are unable to publish the figures as the fee is reliant on a number of variables but we will gladly provide a no-obligation quote on request. Our quote will include the details of the payments that will have to be made to other bodies on your behalf, for example Stamp Duty, Land Registry fees and the various searches we will need to make against the property you propose to purchase.

Wills can be straightforward and they can be complex. The simpler they are, the less you can expect to pay, although given the importance of this document, we would suggest the focus is on getting it to absolutely reflect your wishes.
Our prices for a simple Will start at £295, while a pair of ‘Mirror’ Wills will start at £395. We do not charge for storing your Will. Prices exclude VAT.
To book an appointment, pleas contact Karen Starkey on 0208 979 1131.
There are two types of LPA – Property & Finance and Health & Welfare. Our charges start at £400 for an individual (single) LPA and £600 for both LPAs. For a couple requiring both LPAs (so four in all), our charge is £1,000. The price excludes the court registration fee for each document.
For more details, please contact Karen Starkey on 0208 979 1131.
Probate is another of those areas where the cost is proportionate to the complexity of the estate in question. We offer three levels of service depending on how much work the family/executors are willing or able able to do: Basic Review, Technical Support and Full Support.
Currently, probate fees are £215 per personal application, irrespective of the size of the estate concerned.
For applications made through a solicitor, the rate is set at £155.
All estates with a value of less than £5,000 are exempt from probate fees altogether.
