Cost of applying for a probate

POSTED BY David27 (2 yrs ago)

My father died a couple of years ago.
He was divorced and left no will.

He lived in my country, and, from time to time, traveled abroad.


I, as his only son, receive a letter of administration in my country.

As far as know, he left a bank account in HK, but no property.

I would to file for an Administration in HK.


How much would a solicitor usually charge for handling such a case?

As can be inferred, this is a simple and uncontested case.

Thank you

Otherwise, the administrator has to apply a fresh grant in Hong Kong.
