British Columbia Probate Fees

Source: Probate Fee Act s.2

Where the gross value of all real and personal property situated in British Columbia subject to probate does not exceed $25,000, there is no probate fee.  Where the gross value exceeds $25,000, probate fees are:

for the portion of the gross value over $25,000 up to $50,000  $6 per $1,000 or portion (0.6%)
for the portion of the gross value over $50,000    $14 per $1,000 or portion (1.4%)

There is also an administration (filing) fee of $200 for estates with a gross value exceeding $25,000.  See BC Supreme Court Civil Rules Appendix C - Fees, Schedule 4 section 2(4).

The above information is current as of January 9, 2019.

The above fees were not affected by the new Wills, Estates and Succession Act that came into force March 31, 2014 - for more information on the new Act, see What to do When Someone Dies.
