Apart from the fixed fee quotes set out below, the cost of estate administration largely depends on the size of the estate and how much assistance is required after the initial advice.
- We will provide fixed fees for all or part of the work wherever possible or an initial advice at $360 / hour plus GST.
- Our Fixed Fees will be followed in the absence of obvious unforeseen complications and our precise method will be in accordance with the Supreme Court Scale which has a similar hourly rate.
- That scale is based upon the work actually performed by allowing a certain amount depending on the length of each letter and document etc as opposed to time costing which is only used for attendances in that scale.
- We use that scale for all work in our office because it is preferred by the courts, it is more objective than time and it is less likely to reward inefficiency and be unpredictable.
