Non-inflation linked Court fees!

On Tuesday 22nd April 2014, the official Court fee for making an application for a grant of Probate or Letters of Administration increased from £45 to…………… £155! For personal applications (which the Courts do not like and which take up to 2 months rather than the usual 2 weeks the Court takes for applications made by solicitors), there is still an additional £60 personal application fee. In a conciliatory move, the cost of a Court sealed copy of a grant requested at the time of the application has been reduced at the same time from £1 each to 50p each.
