How much will it cost to administer my loved one's North Carolina estate?
This is a common and reasonable question, but it can also be a difficult one to answer without a more detailed look at the situation. A common rule of thumb is that total probate and estate administration costs tend to end up in the range of 2-8% of the estate. And while it might be tempting to think that a smaller estate will be on the lower end of that range, it often is an inverse relationship—for smaller estates, a large percentage may be spent on probate expenses because there are certain expenses and tasks that need to be handled even though it’s a smaller estate.
