Client feedback

I am extremely happy with the service and the professional manner in which business was conducted, and the efficiency of the communications which resulted in meeting the settlement date. I would have no hesitation to recommend Flat rate settlements to others or use them again.


A special thanks to Jessica Alton for the great service and professional approach for the multiple settlements we had in the last month. All four settlements overlapped each other and it was Jessica’s excellent organisation and cool head which helped to successfully complete all the transactions. Communications were always clear and timely and Jessica always responded quickly to any request. We have always used Flat Rate Settlements and Birman and Ride over many years for our property settlements and legal advice including our will preparation and safekeeping. Michael Hodgkins and his team have always been an absolute pleasure to deal with. My wife Connie and I simply do not go to anyone else. Thank you!


When my wife and I decided to try selling our house privately, we had serious concerns and reservations about all the associated procedural and legal requirements. However, with the help and advice from a number of Flat Rate Settlements staff, we not only survived the sale of one property and the purchase of another, but its fair to say we actually enjoyed the experience as the process unfolded. Thanks to Michael, Matt and Sai for your work on our behalf.


My experience with FlatRate Settlements was first class and at a low cost. Sai Paladi handled my settlement in a professional and efficient manner. I was impressed how he kept me in the loop with regular updates and forwarded any emails from the other parties to me promptly. As soon as settlement took place Sai rang with the good news. He also arranged for me to see two of his colleagues Michael Hodgkins and Rachael Coffey regarding a deceased estate matter and they provided me with the advice I was seeking in friendly and professional manner and at a competitive price. I would have no hesitation in using FlatRate Settlements and Sai Paladi again and would be happy to recommend the to my friends and associates.
