Solicitor Query Service - Terms & Conditions

Thank you for using probate query service. Just some terms and conditions.


“you” means you the solicitor who avails of the service and fills out the query form.

"us" "we" or like terms means Colm Kelly solicitor t/a

Other terms are defined herein.


Nature of the Service

The service (the “Service”) is designed as a once off service to help you with your probate or will drafting query. You might need a sense check on an oath, or are stuck with a foreign element. It might be a tax query or a litigation query. We deal with them all.

Charging and Payment

Our normal fee is €150 + VAT per query. If the matter is very involved and going to be more than that, we will inform you before we start the query. We conduct an initial sense check of your query and let you know whether it qualifies for the Service.

No budget at the moment for the query? We get it! You need a quick help with a file and will come back to us again for future queries.  That's no problem.  You can use our free service.  All we ask is that you agree to these terms and let us know whether or not the query is chargeable or not.

For chargeable matters, we will invoice you (either by post or email) after we deal with the query. Our payment terms are 30 days.

Who is our client?

This service is designed for solicitors in practice.  Therefore, you agree that by completing this form you have the agreement of your firm to bind the firm.  By using this service you have entered into a binding agreement with your firm.

Please note, your client is not our client. Your firm is our client. We provide no advice directly to your client and no contractual arrangement is entered into between your client and us.

Disclaimer and Warranty

While every effort is made to provide accurate and correct advice, the nature of the service is that many of the queries can relate to unusual cases or circumstances which have not arisen before. Further, the nature of some of the queries relate to title drafting or other oath queries. While we base our responses from experience, it can be the case that different probate officers may take a different approach on a matter and so, we cannot guarantee that an oath submitted on our advice will not be queried or rejected by the Probate Office. Our maximum liability to you for all matters related to the Service, whether in contract, tort or otherwise is the fees paid by you for the Service. All warranties whether express or implied are here excluded to the maximum extent permitted by law.
