Total costs vary from sale to sale, but the main ones to look out for are:

  • Commission fees – payable once your estate agent sells your property and contracts are signed. This is charged as a percentage of the sale price + VAT.
  • Energy Performance Certificate (EPC).
  • Conveyancing fees.

An EPC is a legal requirement. You’ll need to have one before any marketing can take place. We can organise this on your behalf.

We work on a no-sale-no-fee basis. Our fees are binding at the point of exchange of contracts, and are due on the day of completion.

We’ll combine traditional and digital marketing to give your property maximum exposure. You’ll feature on the largest online property portals, in local and national media, and on our responsive website and social media sites. You’ll also get premium listings, 3D floor plans, and professional photography as part of our bespoke marketing package.

Once an offer has been accepted, you will need to arrange a conveyancer to handle the legal side. They will exchange the contracts on your behalf. At your earliest convenience, we suggest choosing a conveyancer who is part of the Law Society to avoid any delays.

The typical time frame is 4 – 12 weeks. Timescales can vary depending on circumstances.
