We charge a fixed fee for obtaining most probates or letters of administration. We will provide you with an upfront obligation free quote depending on the estimated value of the estate.
Some estates may be complicated or unusual – in these circumstances, and they are a minority of matters, we may charge differently, but we will let you know up front how we will charge.
We can also help with the administration of estates, where our fees are also competitive.
Fixed price probates and letters of administration
We offer a fixed fee service which starts at just $1,500.
Our fixed fee means that you know from the start how much you will pay and you can always talk to us freely without worrying that the clock is ticking.

Our fixed fees represent a discount on the fees set out in the Supreme Court Scheduled Costs for Legal Service for Probate and Administration Matters.

The fees quoted exclude GST and any third party fees, including valuation, advertising and filing fees.
There are some costs which you may have to meet that are outside of our services and charged by third parties. This will include court filing fees and may also include valuation fees when assets such as houses are valued, or the fees for advertising for unknown creditors.
The above fees include a set scope of services which we will discuss with you. If additional work is required outside of the set scope, we will discuss with you before proceeding and any additional work done will be charged at our hourly rates.
