How Much Will it Cost Me?
The cost of moving house does vary quite significantly. There are a number of factors that influence how expensive moving home is. However, there are some general guidelines to what homeowner should expect to pay.
Estate agents take a commission of between 0.75-3% of the property sale price to sell properties. Conveyancing typically costs £500 – £1500 (including VAT of 20%.) Additional significant costs include Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT), if you buy a property of more than £125,000. A valuation and surveying fee must also be taken into consideration, as should the electronic transfer fee and any removal costs.
