 Plans to raise probate fees ditched

Plans to raise probate fees by up to £20,000 have been scrapped before June’s election. Estates worth £300,000 to £500,000 would have paid a £1,000 fee under the proposals, while those worth £2m or more would have paid £20,000. All estates in England and Wales currently pay £215. The issue will now be a matter for the new government.
