Fee Structure

Minimize

Attorneys' fees in respect of litigation and conveyancing are regulated by the State. Engelbrechts Esselens strictly follow the guidelines set. For our conveyancing fees, kindly view it as published on our Real Estate Law page, by clicking here. In the event of the administration of deceased estates the norm is 3.5% of the gross value of the estate. Kindly visit our page: Estate Planning and Administration, by clicking here. The litigation and office practice guidelines are as published in this text.


If you think that our account is too high, there are procedures whereby the amount can be taxed and assessed. If the matter is of a litigious nature, the taxing master of the Court in whom the matter served, will tax the account.

In the event of civil litigation, defended actions, appearances in court, collections and administrations, the following is relevant: Not too long ago the Bargaining Council reprimanded The Pretoria Attorney Association due to their fee guideline fixing and publications, and the Association had to pay a penalty of hundred thousands of rands. Hence the practice of fee guidelines ceased to exist. The Rules of the Magistrate Courts Act direct what is permissible and appropriate and how one should go about to address fees. For convenience of our clients we publish herewith the relevant extracts of the 3th draft of Rules, as published November 2009.
