Probate fee increase dropped

Proposals have been scrapped for a controversial, large increase in probate fees made under former Prime Minister, Theresa May’s government. Probate fees are currently £155 via a solicitor, £215 without. The proposal was that the cap on fees should be increased to £6,000. It met with a lot of opposition, and Secretary of State for Justice Robert Buckland announced today that it had been scrapped.
