From 26 January 2022, probate application fees in England and Wales will increase to £273 for both professionals and individuals. 

Rather than having two different fees, a single fee will be introduced to be paid regardless even if the application is made by a professional or an individual. 

The new fee represents a hike of 27% for individuals and 76% for professionals. The previous fee difference will now be abolished. 

The Ministry of Justice announced proposals to increase and align fees earlier this year, this was in a bid to manage an £85m deficit in delivery of services in the family jurisdiction. 

Estates with a value less than £5k will continue to not attract fees.
