    Reasonable and Customary Executor Fee in Michigan

    What is the name of your state? Michigan

    What is the reasonable and customary fee and executor may expect for an estate of approximately $100,000?

    Thanks!

    The reasonable fee is the actual cost to do the work. The fees used by attorneys are often outrageous from my experience. If it is a simple situation, there is no reason to charge based on the value of the estate.

    It is a bit unlikely that a Michigan probate attorney would be reading this message board, so you really need to consult with a local probate attorney to get your question answered about this. The law only mentions the fee as "reasonable compensation" so that is a loophole that they can use to charge whatever they want, but normally the fee should be no more than 6% of estate value.
