Probate Fees Increase: 1st May 2017

From the 1st May the application fee for a grant of representation (i.e. grant of probate or letters of administration) will likely be changing from a flat rate of £155.00 to a banded structure according to the value of the estate.

The fees will be as follows:

Estate Worth Application Fee
£50,000.00 – £300,000.00 £300.00
£300,000.00 – £500,000.00 £1,000.00
£500,000.00 – £1,000,000.00 £4,000.00
£1,000,000.00 – £1,600,000.00 £8,000.00
£1,600,000.00 – £2,000,000.00 £12,000.00
Over £2,000,000.00 £20,000.00
