  • Have one less bill to worry about later down the line.
  • It’s the same price as choosing to pay later.

Pay later

  • If you choose to pay later, your one-off fee is payable once your house is sold, or up to 10 months after advert is published - whichever is sooner.
  • If you opt to use our Advanced Conveyancing or Accompanied Viewings, you can also pay these later at no extra cost.
  • It’s the same price as paying upfront.

Your fee is a 'lifetime fee'. This means that you can put your sale on hiatus at any time, and return to the market at the click of a button at no extra charge.

Other costs to consider when selling your home

Moving home is a big life event – which is why it's good to get an upfront understanding of all the potential costs involved.

Stamp Duty

When buying a property, you may need to pay Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT). This is dependent on property price, type, location, and the type of buyer you are. Find out how much Stamp Duty you may need to pay today.

Deposit

Unless you are a cash buyer, you will need a deposit when buying a property. Your deposit amount is a percentage of the property price, usually varying from 25% or higher for second time buyers.

Legal Fees

A licenced conveyancer is required to carry out all legal work when you are buying or selling a property. If you choose to defer your payment you will automatically get access to Purplebricks' partner, Advanced Conveyancing Services, for a fair fee. If you pay upfront, you can still take advantage of this service.

Mortgage

Your mortgage fees will be determined by the mortgage lender and the interest rate that comes with the loan they provide. This can be fixed for a number of years, or variable, which means it can fluctuate monthly.

What is commission and why don’t you charge it?

Traditional estate agents have charged too much, for too long. That's why we charged a fixed fee instead of a percentage to keep things simple and fair.

FAQs about estate agent fees

Get answers to some of our most frequently asked questions about estate agent fees and services.

According to a July 2018 survey conducted by TheAdvisory, average estate agent fees are currently 1.42% including 20% VAT. Individually, fees usually vary from anywhere between 1-3%.

The duties of an estate agent are regulated by the Estate Agents act 1979 - but charging commission is part of a contract set out by the estate agent, meaning the percentage they charge is completely up to them.

While not typical in the UK, some smaller or independent estate agents may be willing to negotiate their percentage. That said, it is unlikely to dip much lower than 1%. Larger, nationwide estate agents are less willing, due to strict policies they will have in place regarding commission levels.

Fees presented by traditional estate agents are required by law to include VAT, but it is worth bearing in mind that some estate agents may still decide to exclude this information. If so, there will be an additional 20% to consider on top of the advertised fee. Purplebricks’ fees are inclusive of VAT, so the price you see is the price you pay.
