Important Fee Information

Agents charge a Sales Commission Fee (for the successful sale of your property) expressed either as a percentage (%) of the Sale Price Achieved or a Fixed Fee. They also may charge a Marketing Fee, which covers items such as Advertising (both online and local press), Professional Photography, For Sale or To Let signs, Brochure and Plan production.


All Fees may be subject to VAT so for the avoidance of doubt ALL FEES quoted EXCLUDE VAT so they are like for like comparisons.


Example: £140,000 sale price quoted at 1.5% is £2100.00 excluding VAT. With VAT added, the total cost would be £2520.00 (VAT quoted at 20%)

Important Fee Information

Agents charge a Letting (Tenant Finding) Commission or Fee for the successful letting of your property expressed either as a percentage (%) of the Annual Rent Achieved or a Fixed Fee. Sometimes they will charge the first months rent as a fee.


They also may charge a Marketing Fee, which covers items such as Advertising (both online and local press), Professional Photography, To Let signs, Brochure and Plan production.


If the Agent offers Management Services, they will indicate this and provide a more tailored bespoke quote for you depending on what services you require. We ask all agents that offer management services to provide you with a basic quote.


All Fees may be subject to VAT so for the avoidance of doubt ALL FEES quoted EXCLUDE VAT so they are like for like comparisons.


Example: A £500 per month rental property, with an Annual Rental of £6000 will quote as follows:


10% AR (meaning 10% of Annual Rent = £600)

£495 (meaning a Fixed Fee of £495)

FMR (meaning the First Months Rent is taken as the letting fee. This will be 1/12th of the Annual Rent, in this example = £500 )


Don’t forget to add VAT onto your costs at current rate of 20%

Important Info

Please note - An agent cannot increase the fee quoted unless you agree OR the approximate value of your property is outside the range of values you selected when requesting a quote.


When you meet the agent don’t forget to ask lots of questions and remember, cheapest may not be best. You will want an agent you can be confident with, who can demonstrate sales in your area, or if it’s a new company, one that can show you how their strategy is going to bring the result you want. Service is also very important. Don’t forget to check out the Agents Contracts area so you know what type you are signing.
