How much does probate house clearance cost?

One of the questions that we get all the time is how much does the probate house clearance service cost. A lot of people dealing with a probate house clearance are doing so for the first (and possibly only) time in their life, and are slightly fearful of the administrative burdens on them as executors of the estate – solicitors may be dealing with a large volume of cases and need to manage them effectively. They need to account for the costs that they incur in winding up the estate, so that they able to demonstrate that to all stakeholders.

There is no simple answer to how much a probate house clearance is going to cost. As with any other waste service, the major determining factor is how much material needs to be removed, and how heavy it is – that dictates the cost of having the waste deposited at a licensed facility; to some extent the type of waste will dictate the cost of a probate house clearance, but house clearances are unlikely to include hazardous or unusual waste. Generally speaking an average house will cost somewhere around £500, but there is a lot of variability in this.
