Changes to probate in 2019

Download The Gudie

Controversial fee increase set to take place from April.

From April 2019, some estates in England and Wales could be required to pay almost £6,000 for a service that currently costs less than 4% of that amount.

This is because of a proposed change to the fees families must pay to administer the estate of someone who has died.

This process, more generally referred to as probate, involves gathering the assets of the deceased, valuing the estate, paying any tax and bills, and distributing the estate according to the will.

Subtle procedural differences exist in Scotland, where you need to obtain confirmation before inheritance tax can be deducted and what’s left of the estate is distributed to beneiciaries.

The proposed changes to probate fees will not take effect in Scotland from April 2019.
