In addition to the scale rate of commission where the administration involves extraordinary or services not included in the scope covered by the above rates, we reserve the right to charge time or cost fees.  For a list of the scope items, please contact us.

Perpetual Guardian also provides executorship services where we are not the executor. These are charged on a time and cost basis.
