We all know that moving house is one of life’s most stressful events; and it is not just stress levels that can hit the roof. Bank balances can be hugely affected too. In this article, we take a look at the average cost of moving home and what you can expect to be paying out as you begin the process.
Recent research has uncovered that the average cost of moving home today is more than £9,000. And if you live in London then the cost can be much higher.
These can be broken down into estate agent fees, legal and surveyor fees, other associated conveyancing costs – whether you use conveyancing solicitors London or in Loughborough our advice is not to represent yourself – as well as stamp duty. These all amount to an average of almost £7,500 with an extra £1,690 on items such as removal firms and storage fees.
