Our fixed fees for Wills Services.

Wills, Lasting Powers of Attorney & Court of Protection

Court of Protection

The solicitor’s fee, which is fixed by the court, is £1204 + 20% vat (£240.80) (£1444.80 inclusive of vat). There is also a £408 court fee although, depending on your income, you may qualify for exemption / remission and a doctor’s medical report costs in the region of £150 - £250 + 20% vat (£180 - £300 inclusive of VAT) . There are other ongoing court administration fees that are payable on an annual basis which we can also advise you on.

Lasting Power of Attorney

We charge from £395 + 20% vat (£474 inclusive of VAT)  to set up a single Lasting Power of Attorney. There’s also an additional charge of £82 which is payable to the Office of Public Guardian, the regulatory body, as a registration fee. 

For couples who set up their LPAs, it’s £550 + 20% vat (£660 inclusive of VAT)  . As it’s for two people, two Office of Public Guardian registration fees will be payable.

Timescale - typically 2 to 3 weeks but registration by The Office of Public Guardian (OPG) will take longer. We will agree timing at the outset for more urgent situations.


If you don’t already have a Will, you should consider getting one. By drafting your Will, you’ll ensure your assets go to your loved ones and not the state.

The team at Russell & Russell are qualified Will writers, so you can rest assured you’re in safe hands. We can draft your Will from just £175 + 20% vat (£210 inclusive of VAT) for a single Will and £300 + 20% vat for a double, or mirror, Will (£360 inclusive of VAT). And, should your circumstances change, we can also help you make alterations to your Will.

Timescale - typically 2 to 3 weeks, we will agree timing at the outset for more urgent situations.
