Currently, the fees payable to the Probate Registry to obtain a Grant of Probate (or Letters of Administration) are set at £155.00 if you make the application through a Solicitor or £215.00 if you make the application yourself.
The new proposal is to make the fee payable, whether through a Solicitor or individual, the same and for this to rise to £273.00.
This only applies to Estates worth over £5,000.00.
Any applications received by 26 January 2022 will incur the lower fee. Any applications sent before this date, but not delivered until after this date, can also attract the lower fee at the Probate Registry’s discretion.
If you are seeking a Grant of Probate then in order to take advantage of the lower fee then applications will need to be made before 26 January 2022.
