HG leak- possible.
Rear main- unlikely, but possible. These rarely leak on our cars.
Oil pan- very, VERY rare to be leaking.
Get another opinion.
But for a timing belt with needed parts (tensioner, pulleys, water pump, seals, etc) plus a HG job should run $3000 or under for my experience. I was quoted $2500 for a used car I was looking at, by a dealer, 3 years ago for the same repairs.
