Stop new Government probate fees

This petition had 16 supporters


From May 2017 the Government intends to increase Probate fees for properties on an upward scale as follows: £300 on estates from £50,000  worth up to £300,000. £1000 on estates worth up to £500,000. £4000 on estates worth up to £1m.  £8000 on estates worth up to £1.6m. £12,000 on estates worth up to £2m, thereafter £20,000 upwards and above. This will give rise to extreme hardship on lower price properties if dependants do not have £1000 or £4000 to play with. A Government minister informs me that most banks will release cash from estates to pay the fee. Of course they will with hefty charges attached to them. Please sign this petition these costs could well have serious consequences.
