Experts expect probate rise to return

Controversial plans to raise the cost of probate from a £255 administration fee to up to £20,000 could be reintroduced without notice, experts have warned. Chris Millward, Institute of Legacy Management chief executive, says the “stealth tax” could be brought back at any time and with very little warning. George Hodgson, Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners chief executive, said ‘suspicion was growing’ that the probate fee hike would return.
