NSW Probate Costs and Feees


Probate Solicitor Fees

For services to obtain a NSW Grant of Probate or Administration, the vast majority of solicitors charge according to the "Legal Profession Uniform Law Application Regulation 2015 - Schedule 3". This scale of fees is a tier based system, which is based on the gross value of the estate.

The full table outlining the costs for each bracket is listed below, however you may find this handy calculator to be more useful:
