New Probate fees 2017



You have possibly heard that Probate fees were due to increase on 1st May 2017 for all estates over £50,000. The table below sets out the new proposed fee structure. These have now been “shelved” for the time-being – given the current general election. They were not generally popular and therefore, hopefully, they will not be making a reappearance.


Value of estate Fee required
0-£50,000 Nil
£50,001-£300,000 £300
£300,001-£500,000 £1000
£500,001-£1,000,000 £4000
£1,000,001-£1,600,000 £8000
£1,600,001-£2,000,000 £12,000
£2,000,001 or more £20,000


If you would like any further information, please telephone our Probate expert Andrew Gullett on 01924 332395. Probate can normally be obtained quickly at a fixed price.
