How much do solicitors charge for being an executor?

The price solicitors charge for being a professional executor may vary due to a range of factors, including their previous legal experience and the complexity of the estate. You may find that some solicitors charge an hourly rate, some charge a percentage fee depending on the value of the estate (up to 5%), and some may charge a combination of the two for their services.
