For Probate matters, our fees structure are very competitive as we are familiar with such matters. Our professional costs for obtaining a Grant of Probate starts from $1200/-for a simple estate (excluding disbursements) and provided the Will is inter alia free from any issue/ faults ie there is no need for due execution affidavit to be signed by the solicitor who had drafted the Will.
We accept instructions from foreign law firms in resealing of foreign grants in Singapore for their clients. We are familiar with muslim as well as non muslim estate. We have Mandarin and Malay speaking solicitors.
Upon the death of a person, generally his assets cannot be dealt with until the Grant of Letters of Administration (died without Will) or the Grant of Probate (died with Will) is issued by the Court. The Court issues the Grant after the application has been filed and (all procedure has been followed). If the estate is large, the time required would be longer as the value of the various assets have to be ascertained. In the case of a Grant of Probate, the time frame would be shorter as there would not be a need for a renunciation application or dispensation with sureties. We have completed and extracted the grant within a few weeks of instructions for some of our clients.
For assets above S$5 million, the application is filed in the High Court. pursuant to the latest direction. For assets below S$5 million, the application is filed in the Family Courts. Stamp fees for estate above $3m however are substantively much higher than those below. If you require any assistance to apply for Grant of Probate or Grant of Letters of Administration, please call 6534 1328 for an inquiry.
