You should also factor in home report and survey costs. Most properties in Scotland sell with a home report which needs to be completed before we can start advertising and marketing activity.
This gives you a surveyors’ insight into your properties condition and from here we work out if any repairs or maintenance works are best completed by your prior to hand over or by the new owner after they have moved in.
Surveys vary depending on your location, property type and value but as a general rule of thumb you can expect to pay between £300 and £600 for your report. We can arrange to have this to be carried out for you or you can make your own arrangements if you have contacts in place or a preferred surveyor that you want to use.
If we arrange it for you we reassure you that we shop around surveying firms regularly to ensure good value and also to make sure we are working with surveyors who are fair and honest, and will provide the best survey report for you and for your buyer possible.
