We recently had a solicitor go over some mortgage documents with us and also witness the documents. We were there about an hour and fifteen minutes and am wondering (before we receive the invoice) what would be a likely price to pay for such a service? I know, something I should have asked first.
We are in the market for a solicitor on our IP team and personally and to date have used a conveyancer for property purchases. I didn’t particularly ‘click’ with this one, so if anyone has any recommendations, they’d be much appreciated. Prefer within 30 minutes of Parramatta (NSW) if possible.

We’ve paid $400 on 2 occasions in Perth.
We received the invoice today and came in at $440, so $400ish must be the going rate.TerrywParticipant@terrywJoin Date: 2001Post Count: 16,213
Yes I would charge $550. The solicitor has to go through the agreements paragraph by paragraph and explain to the client so as to cover themselves. There are a few cases where the solicitor ended up in trouble over these.Kate AshmorParticipant@kateashmorJoin Date: 2015Post Count: 20
