Selling costs

When the Valuer carries out the valuation, they will confirm the fee for selling your home. This fee can be a fixed or percentage fee and is payable on completion of the sale of your property.

There are no up front costs, unless we organise your EPC for you (this can be discussed with your Valuer) and we operate on a “no sale no fee” Agency Agreement.

Below is a list of possible costs you may be faced with when selling your property. You should ensure you obtain detailed individual costs for your own use.

  • Mortgage fees
  • Obtaining an EPC (if your property needs one)
  • Estate Agent fees
  • Solicitor costs
  • Removal costs

Buying costs

When buying a property there are a number of costs that you may be faced with.

We would suggest you ensure you obtain detailed individual costs for your own use.

Possible costs:

  • Deposit
  • Valuation Fees
  • Home Buyers’ Survey
  • Solicitor’s Costs
  • Stamp Duty
  • Mortgage Fees
  • Removals

We have an in-house Financial Adviser, Andrew Harrod, who will happily go though the costs of moving with you in greater detail and we can also recommend local firms.

Renting costs

No application fees are payable. A Holding deposit will be payable to secure the property and will provide exclusivity to you when an offer has been accepted, subject to the receipt of suitable references. The Holding deposit will be offset against your rent payment, assuming a successful application. The Holding Deposit Contract will provide full details of the Holding Deposit.

Rent is usually paid on a monthly basis and is paid in advance. You will need to pay your first month’s rent and the tenancy deposit before you move into the property.

During the Tenancy you are likely to be responsible for other common outgoings such as utility charges, council tax, broadband and TV licence.

Landlord costs

The association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA) and the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) recommend that a Landlord should allow one month’s rent to cover the cost of marketing a property and commencing a Tenancy in accordance with legislation. The costs of Letting will vary, dependent on the type, size and location of a property as well as the basis on which it is to be Let. The selected level of service will also affect the fee level and structure.

During a Tenancy, a Tenant is commonly responsible for the cost of utilities and council tax. It is likely that a property will require maintenance during a Tenancy and a Landlord should budget accordingly.

More information on the cost of Letting your property can be provided upon a market appraisal for you.
