Probate (known as confirmation in Scotland) can be a confusing and overwhelming process for executors. You're already dealing with the emotional burden of handling a loved one's affairs, and the complexities of probate can only add to the stress. To make matters worse, not knowing the potential costs involved can further compound the uncertainty.

Our probate calculator is specifically designed for executors in Scotland, providing a simple and transparent way to estimate probate costs. By entering basic details about the estate, you'll receive an instant estimate that includes legal fees, court fees and other relevant expenses. Our calculator takes into account the specific requirements of Scottish probate, providing you with a clear understanding of what to expect.
