How much will it cost?

We understand that cost will be an important consideration when setting up a trust. The costs involved in running a trust are generally paid from the trust assets. Because every trust is different, it is not possible to give a quote without full details. However, we will give you details of how our charges are calculated and an estimate of charges before you commit to using our services.

Contact us now if you would like to discuss your trust by completing our no obligation online enquiry form. Alternatively you can call us direct on 0191 5666500 or request a call back.
