Here is a previous similar question with answer FYI -

For that scope (and with that age I would certainly replace everything which he can reasonably get at), assuming in wood framing (not concrete) AND that the old plumbing location and drain slope is to code (so just replacing existing and tying in to old plumbing at his cut points) probably not less than $1000 and commonly nearer $2000 very rough numbers - assuming plastic DWV pipe - water pipe PEX or copper (not too much difference in cost the for short runs you are talking about. this is for a full bath - probably less than 1/2 that for 1/4 bath (powder room) and maybe 2/3 that for 1/2 bath (no shower or tub).

If this is to include installing the new fixtures in a return visit too then commonly more in the $2000-3000 range - plus fixture costs if not cheap economy fixtures.

This assumes your locale does not require taking the new pipe back to the source - just replacing what you can readily expose by removing the drywall and subfloor.
