FEE

S$250 excluding GST (PayNow to Kensington Trust, UEN 201541575G)

There is also no “trust set up fee” as the Testamentary Trust documents are drafted through getArrange.com.

The S$250 upfront fee is ONLY for appointing Kensington Trust as the Trustee/Executor. It is non-refundable even if Kensington Trust (e.g. as a substitute) is not required to act eventually.

The professional fees and other charges for work done in connection with the proving of your Will, obtaining the grant of probate, the administration of your estate under your Will, and in administering any trusts arising or activated are payable upon your passing.
