There are three main costs involved in selling a property:
Estate Agent Fees
Estate Agent Fees will either be a percentage of the purchase price, or a fixed fee. When you ask the estate agents to value your home, make sure they outline their fees during their visit so you can take these into account.
You are legally required to provide an EPC when you market your property for sale. This outlines the energy efficiency rating of your property. We can organise this for you if you do not already have one. Contact your local branch for a quote for how much this will cost.
Conveyancing is the legal transfer of property from one owner to another. There is a lot of legal and administrative work to do before contracts can be exchanged and completed.
There is a lot to organise and co-ordinate, including legal matters, financial arrangements and regulations to comply with, so you need to use a solicitor. We can introduce you to a solicitor and offer a no sale no fee conveyancing service with a guaranteed fixed price to keep everything simple.
You may also decide to pay for extras such as professional photography or advanced web positioning. And don't forget about removals!
Ask your agent to outline all these costs at the start of your sale so that you can budget your move.
