How our fixed-fee quote compare to notary fees

In Belgium, notaries charge 1 to 2% of the gross assets of an estate, which can sometimes cost more than €5,000. By taking certain steps yourself and having the declaration of inheritance drawn up remotely by one of our experts, you can save up to 50% of the unnecessary costs.
Here's the top three ways we help you save money:

Fixed-fee quote

Unlike notaries who charge a percentage of the estate assets, we always offer a fixed price, in advance. This avoids surprises and reduces costs for larger estates.

Transparent service

The fees charged by Notaries can sometimes be higher as they include obtaining a certificate of inheritance and taking full responsibility for the process. We also offer this service, but understand that some people wish to do this themselves where possible.

100% remote

Our estate specialists take care of the process remotely, and are available by phone and email. This means that there is no need to travel to our office.
