Probate is the legal process for dealing with the estate of someone who has died

Under the new rules, anyone who inherits an estate worth more than £50,000 will see the fee for probate rise to between £300 and £20,000.

Estates worth between £50,000 and £300,000 will cost £300.  Between £300,001 and £500,000, it will be £1,000, and between £500,001 and £1 million, the bill will hit £4,000. Fees continue to increase to a maximum of £20,000 for estates of more than £2 million.

Probate is free if the estate is worth less than £50,000 (under the current rules, it’s free for those under £5,000).

The change does not affect Scotland or Northern Ireland.
