Probate fees

We have previously reported about the proposed increase in the fees to obtain probate – which would have increased the cost to many people obtaining a grant of probate.

The government has announced that the proposed fee increased will not take place and said:

"Fees are necessary to properly fund our world-leading courts system, but we have listened carefully to concerns around changes to those charged for probate and will look at them again as part of a wider review to make sure all fees are fair and proportionate."
