Proposed increase in probate fees
There is a Petition available for people to sign to reconsider the proposed significant and unreasonable increase in probate fees.
The current fee for all estates is 155. The change mean fees on 42% of estates will increase by 2 to 129 times, payable even if the estate passes to spouse or charity. There is no difference in the amount of work to issue a Grant for 100k or 800k and yet the fees will be 3,700 more.
