Parliamentary briefing: Non-Contentious Probate (Fees) Order

The Law Society is strongly opposed to proposals that wold dramatically hike fees for grant of probate from the current flat fee of £215 (or £155 if done by a solicitor) to a sliding scale of fees ranging from £250 to £6,000.

We are supporting amendments in the House of Lords that would decline to approve the Order, or regret the imposition of the new fees structure.

Read our key positions on the order in this briefing.
