Kings Court Trust have all the information you need to know on the changing probate fees set by the government. 

 

“On the 5th of November 2018, an update on probate fees was provided by Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for the Ministry of Justice, Lucy Frazer QC MP. It was announced that new legislation to implement a new, banded structure of fees for a Grant of Probate (also known as Grant of Representation) has been presented before Parliament.

If the proposal is passed by the government, it will:

  • Allow people to apply for a Grant of Probate online.
  • Provide support for those who do not have the skills to apply digitally.
  • Result in changes to the current flat fee for obtaining a Grant of Probate.
  • Change the current estate value threshold from £5,000 to £50,000.”
