Good afternoon, I posted before under another thread and thank you for the advice then provided. My late father died intestate and I am assisting my mother in tidying up his affairs. We visited solicitor who advised us to get valuation of home and small piece of land. Value of home €100k (my mother lives there on her own), land value €42.5k. His fees are set out as follows: 3% on first 10k value of estate, 2.5% on second €10k value of estate, 2% on balance. Unless I am calculating this wrong it is going to cost her over 3k for solicitors fees and this is just to cover return to Rev Comms., extraction of Grant of Probate and all "non contentious work re distribution of assets and compeltion of administration of estate except transfer of property". My mothers only source of income is old age pension and she does not have any other means. Is there another way of getting this sorted without shelling out such large sums of money? There are seven siblings and we all intend to transfer our interest in the estate back to her so she can make a will. I have looked at free legal aid but she does not appear to qualify for same from my reading of the regulations . Thank you.
