Update on Probate Fees

Probate Fees Increase SCRAPPED, For Now


In April 2017, we reported on government’s  plans to increase of the probate fees. Much has changed since then. The Prime Minister has called a general election, which will take place in June this year.

Reports suggest that the proposal to increase the probate fees has been put on ice for now. We will update you if and when a new government minister starts defrosting the idea of taxing estates thousands of pounds on Grant of Probate applications.
