Typical solicitors fees for selling a house can range from anywhere between £250 and £1,500 or more. It depends to a large extent on how much work the conveyancer needs to do to complete the sale.
Will it make any difference if you put your house on the market in the summer?
Solicitor fees for selling a house won’t vary with the seasons, but your chances of selling your house in a reasonable time frame will. A lot of people choose to put their houses on the market in the summer and then wonder why no one is coming to view. It might be that the house is not in a good state of repair or that the asking price is too high. It could also be that the summer is just not a good time to try to sell a house. Why is this?
A lot of the time it is because, although summer is seen as the one time of the year when there is more time to get things done – including house hunting – in reality, this is also the time of year when families finally get some time together. They might be out of the country on holiday, or just enjoying going for days out. Sacrificing this precious time to go and look at houses is not always a priority. They may well wait until after the summer to even put their house on the market. This way, they don’t have to waste their holiday time staying in to show prospective buyers around – and to start searching for another one to live in.
