Moving Costs & House Moving Company Leeds

With the average total cost of moving to a new home reaching almost £12,000, recent research has shown that over 80% of perspective homebuyers underestimate the costs of buying a new home, so what are the real costs involved in moving house? Firstly, there will be a number of upfront fees over and above your mortgage. These will include a deposit towards the cost of the property, stamp duty, valuation fees, legal fees and surveyor’s fees.

Stamp Duty & House Moving Company Leeds

Stamp duty is a government tax paid on homes costing £125,001 or more. There is an extra 3% increase on top of current rates for any purchases of additional residential properties above £40,000, for buy-to-let properties or second homes.

Valuation Fee  & House Moving Company Leeds

Most mortgage lenders will require a valuation fee to assess the value of the property, so that they can establish how much they are prepared to lend you. This cost can be between £150-£1,500 depending of the value of the property.

Legal Fees & House Moving Company Leeds

You will need to appoint either a licensed conveyance or a solicitor to provide legal assistance when buying or selling a home. You will need to pay for local searches, typically costing between £250-£300, on top of standard legal fees of between £450-£1500.

Surveyor’s Fee & House Moving Company Leeds

Before you proceed with a house purchase, you should engage a surveyor to check the condition of the property. Surveys range from a basic homebuyer’s report to a full structural survey; you can expect to pay between £300 and £600 depending on the type of survey you require. This cost can be offset against the cost of any repairs that may need to be made, and may help you negotiate a reduction in the asking price.

Estate Agents Fee & House Moving Company Leeds

If you are purchasing a home, you will not need to pay estate agents fees. However, if you are also selling your home in order to move to another property, you can expect to pay between 1% and 3% of the sale price plus VAT. This is one area where you can negotiate a fee before the house is put on the market.

Removal Costs & House Moving Company Leeds

Hiring the right removals company will make all the difference, especially if you’re after a stress-free moving day. Consider if you would like them to take care of all the packing, some of it or whether you would like to pack yourself.
