MoJ Open ConsultationJuly 7, 2021
The Ministry of Justice has published a consultation setting out the proposal to align court fees payable for Probate applications to cost recovery. The aim of this proposal is to ensure the fees better meet the costs of running the probate application service. If implemented, the proposal would rationalise the current dual fee structure to a single fee for all applicants of £273. The fee will be payable only on estates whose value exceeds £5,000.
