HM Land Registry Searches                   £    6.00

Mortgage Redemptions

We will redeem your existing mortgage by CHAPS and you will be charged £35.00 plus VAT (£42.00) for the payment.

Estate Agents

We will pay the estates agents for you and there is no charge for this.

The amount you need to pay the estate agents could depend on a number of factors but is usually based on the sale price and tends to be agreed before you instruct us.

Net Sale Proceeds

Your net sale proceeds are usually sent to you on the day of completion.  If you choose to have your monies sent by CHAPS rather than by BACS you will be charged £35.00 plus VAT (£42.00) for the payment.

How Long Will Your Sale Take?

How long it will take from accepting an offer until completion will depend on a number of factors. The average process takes between 10 to 14 weeks but it can be quicker or slower, depending on the other parties and if there is a chain.
