The average cost of moving house in the UK has more than tripled in the last ten years. The actual price of the house your selling and then buying are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to working out the real cost of moving home.
In many cases you have to factor in stamp duty, estate agents fees and solicitors costs amongst a multitude of other costs. If you’re thinking about these questions then you are more than likely on the right track to accurately predicting how much selling your home will cost.
What costs are there?
1) Mortgage Lender Charges.
2) Solicitors Fees
3) Side costs
When will these costs appear?
Many of these costs will be fairly obvious and as a result their timing will be expected. You’ll need to pay solicitor costs and mortgage lender charges after you have had the relevant meetings.
The side costs listed above will have to be paid once the relevant arrangements have been made.
In other words, you, as the property seller, can dictate when many of the costs arise and deal with them as and when it is appropriate.
