Flora Nelmes discusses the fees when applying for the Grant of Probate

How much does probate cost?

There is an upfront fee when you apply for the Grant of Probate (the ‘Grant’).

Unless the estate is worth less than £5,000, the fee is currently either £155 if you apply through a solicitor or £215 if you apply personally.

Each additional copy of the Grant costs £1.50 and we would always suggest you ask for a few extra copies depending on the number of asset holders involved.

If you decide to instruct a solicitor to help you with probate, their fees will depend on the particular characteristics of the estate. If you would like us to provide you with an estimate of our fees, please contact a member of our Private Client Department.

In our next blog we will look at what you would need to do first before applying for probate but if you have any questions relating to probate or your own Will or tax planning requirements, please contact Flora Nelmes at flora.nelmes@hunterslaw.com or call 0207 412 0050.
