The hidden costs of moving
It’s always enjoyable scrolling through listings of properties for sale – whether you’re after expansive dream houses and country boltholes through to sharp urban living or seeking a wholesome family slice of suburbia.
There’s one thing in common however – the price you see is not the price you pay.
The average cost of moving is almost £9,0001 and includes many things you’d not normally expect to budget for. One of the biggest considerations to bear in mind is whether you already have a mortgage – if you can’t move it across to your new property, there can be a heft early-repayment charge.
Factor in costs for estate agent fees (check Jarlands fee's here), surveyors, Stamp Duty, conveyancing, and removal costs, and it soon stacks up.
