HMRC To Increase Probate Fees From April 2019
Currently all estates pay a fee of £155 (where a solicitor is used to apply for the grant of representation) or £215 (where an applicant applies in person).
If you are already administering the estate of a deceased person and have yet to apply for your grant, apply before the rules change. It is best to take legal advice as rushing to beat the probate court fees may lead to mistakes which could lead to problems such as HMRC penalties.
As part of the reforms, applicants can apply for the grant of representation online. The Government will provide access to digital support which the Government says will provide a simpler and more efficient application process. However, the Court will not likely provide legal assistance needed to deal with the administrative process and so using a solicitor remains the simplest way to help you through the process.
