Fee policy in estates and probate matters


Segelov Taylor acts on a ‘no win no fee’ basis for individuals in family provision claims. This means if you are not successful you will not be charged for our costs incurred in litigating the claim. However, if you are not successful in your claim you may be ordered to pay the executor’s costs. It is therefore important you seek legal advice as to the merits of any claim before commencing proceedings. In certain circumstances Segelov Taylor will act on a ‘no win no fee’ basis in challenging a will. Please contact our office and we will provide you with a free assessment of your case


If you are the executor of a will where a family provision claim has been made you are entitled to have the cost of defending the claim paid by the estate.

Probate and Letters of Administration

Professional costs in obtaining Probate and Letters of Administration are regulated by the Legal Profession Uniform Application Act 2004 which calculates the professional costs according to the gross value of the estates assets. Segelov Taylor will provide to you full disclosure of the costs before commencing an application for Probate or Letters of Administration.
