Beat the Probate Fees Increase

From May this year the Government is planning to introduce a sliding scale of charges for probate fees based on the value of your estate. Beat the increase in fees by contacting Probaters today!

They new fee regime is as follows;

Value of Estate

(before inheritance tax)

Proposed Fee
Up to £50,000 or exempt from requiring a grant of probate £0
Exceeds £50,000 but does not exceed £300,000




Exceeds £300,000 but does not exceed £500,000





Exceeds £500,000 but does not exceed £1m




Exceeds £1m but does not exceed £1.6m




Exceeds £1.6m but does not exceed £2m




Above 2m £20000


The Government is abolishing the current fixed Registry fee of £215 (£155 for solicitors). From May 2017, depending on the value of your property you may have to pay an increased fee for probate. Therefore, we soon have to change our policy of including the Probate Registry’s fee in our quotation.
