Selling your home but worried about costs? We have some answers

Are you looking to sell your house or flat but have concerns about the costs you might have to pay? Below are some frequently asked questions that might assist you.

✅ Do I always have to pay fees when selling my home?

No. If you work with a property buying company that has a trustworthy reputation, they can buy your home from you – typically for a cash sum that doesn’t include any fees, so you’ll get the total amount you’re quoted.

✅ What are typically the highest costs involved with selling?

For most typical house or flat sales the biggest expense is likely to be the fees that you might pay to an auctioneer or an estate agent if you choose to sell this way, followed by fees for conveyancing, removal, and other charges.

✅ Should I spend money to fix a major problem with my home before selling it?

If your house or flat has a significant structural flaw, which can include subsidence, storm damage and more, then you will have to assess whether you have the time, money and energy to resolve the issue before trying to find a buyer. Just remember that you can still get a fair and fast offer for your home “as is” without fixing the problem, by contacting a quick home buyer.

✅ What are the various options available when trying to sell my home?

You can usually choose from selling with the services of an estate agent, selling at a property auction, selling without the help of either of these third parties, or selling to a quick home buying company like LDN Properties. But research each of the four methods because they vary in several important factors, including how much they will cost an individual seller.

✅ What is usually the speediest strategy for selling a property?

Getting in touch with LDN Properties or another quick home buyer is typically the most rapid way to sell almost any house, flat or other residential property because from beginning to end it should only take a few short weeks. But if you choose to instead sell through an auctioneer, with an estate agent or without any help then the timeline will be at least several months on average.

✅ What assurances do I have with trusting to sale of my home to a quick buyer?

If you’re interested in selling your house or flat to LDN Properties or another quick buyer, always ask if the company is a member of The Property Ombudsman (TPO), an independent entity that writes rules to protect homeowners against fraud in the industry. As a genuine TPO member, LDN Properties follows those rules, which should give you peace of mind when selling.

✅ If my conveyancer is charging high fees do I have any alternatives?

Shopping around is your best strategy when it comes to most aspects of selling your home. Never go with the first figure you’re quoted, and see if you can get a cheaper rate for hiring a professional to do the conveyancing work elsewhere.
