Has the proposed rise in probate fees finally died a death? Now confirmed by STEP!!

Updated: Oct 16, 2019

It is being reported in newspapers that the Justice Secretary Robert Buckland has worked with a committee of MPs and quietly pushed through proposals to kill off Theresa May's increase in probate fees.

He described the increase as "not fair and proportionate" as it is reported that 280,000 families would pay higher probate fees with 56,000 families paying between £2,500 and £6,000 as a result of the increased charges.

So, it seems unfortunate that the Government will now lose a potential £185million in increased court fees but it has been a successful fight for the legal profession who have fought hard for the best interests of their clients.

As soon as we receive confirmation from the legal profession we will confirm this news
