Good, Affordable Probate lawyer in Singapore  – Wills and Probate Law (or ‘Estate Law”)  can be complex and you should always ensure that you have the right wills and probate lawyer in Singapore to assist you.

You may wish to consider getting a lawyer who specializes in wills and probate.  This is because you are planning to preserve family wealth and to pass down your wealth.   Your wills and probate lawyer should therefore have knowledge of real property and to see potential problems ahead.

Here are some suggestions on how to find and choose a wills and probate lawyer in Singapore.

 .

FINDING A GOOD, AFFORDABLE PROBATE LAWYER IN SINGAPORE

 .

  1. One effective way of finding a good affordable wills and probate lawyer in Singapore is to ask your friends for recommendations.  Another way is to search online.  Read the lawyers profiles and see if they fit what you are looking for.

     .

  2. Most lawyers offer a free first consultation. You should make use of the free first consultation to find out more about the lawyer.

     .

  3. During the free first consultation, you should ask the following questions:

     .

    a. Competence – Is the lawyer a specialist in wills and probate?  Getting a Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration requires some specialist knowledge and you may wish to engage a specialist probate lawyer.  For example, your probate application to court will need to be tailored specially if there are children beneficiaries or if someone does not want to act as the personal representative.

     .

    b.   Fees – most law firms will charge a flat fixed fee.  There is no reason to pay hourly fees for a routine probate matter.

     .

    c.   Compare the fees.  You don’t have to choose the cheapest as the difference in fees is not going to be huge.  There is little point hunting for a probate lawyer who can save you one or two hundred dollars.  What is more important is that you find yourself a good, affordable probate lawyer, and not necessarily the one who charges the cheapest.

     .

  4.  Completion time – your lawyer should be able to tell you how long the work will take.  At PKWA Law, we normally complete a standard probate work fairly quickly.

     .

  5. At this juncture, you may wish to check with your lawyer about doing a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA).  Most lawyers will also be able to do the LPA and you should ask if you can be charged a lower flat fee if you do the LPA together with your will or probate.

     .

  6. Use your common sense and gut instincts to evaluate the lawyers on your list. You should choose the probate lawyer in Singapore that you comfortable with.
