Probate filing fees are the fees that must be paid to the province of British Columbia to obtain a Grant of Probate. These fees are as follows:
– No fee if the estate is worth less than $25,000.
– Basic fee of $208 plus $6 per $1,000 if the estate is worth between $25,000 and $50,000 (for a total of $358 for the first $50,000).
– For estates worth over $50,000, $358 plus $14 per $1,000 of estate value over $50,000.
The Probate Registry of the court determines the estate value based on documents filed by the executor.
