Buying and selling of property
in the UK is largely done through Estate Agents who might typically
charge between 1.5 and 2.5% of the sale price. Generally the
rate is lower if you give sole agency rights. Remember you will
enter into a legal contract with your agent, so make sure you
understand and comply with the terms of your agreement.
Agents will help you decide
on a selling price, but at the end this is your decision. There
is no barrier to selling your own property, either online or
through traditional advertising means. There is a very good guide
to using estate agents on the government's Consumer
The process of buying a property
will involve your solicitor in carrying out legal searches to
verify the ownership and any legal constraints on the property.
See our legal legal page for more information
on this. Similarly, the process of buying property will very
likely involve a survey -more on this under surveys.
