A valid EPC is a legal requirement when selling your home, which contains information about your property’s energy use and the typical energy costs. If you’re selling a property in Scotland, you’ll need a home report which includes an EPC.
Check to see if your EPC is valid by visiting https://www.gov.uk/find-energy-certificate if your EPC isn’t valid, your easyProperty estate agent will be able to arrange this for you for just £90.
How much it will cost to sell your house depends on a a few different factors, including:
- Your Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) – A valid EPC is a legal requirement if you’re selling your property and outlines your property’s energy efficiency. It basically helps potential buyers understand all the costs involved with the house and gives them tips on how to reduce energy. Check to see if your EPC is valid https://www.gov.uk/find-energy-certificate or get one of agents to set this up for just £90.
- Estate agency fees – estate agency fees can vary and range from 1% to 3.5% if you choose to work with a high street estate agent. Here at easyProperty, we make selling your property simple as we offer three types of payment options. This includes an “upfront fee”, a “split fee” or a “no sale, no fee” with optional upgrades. Find out more about our fees here.
- Conveyancing – conveyancing is the legal transfer of your property to the buyer and requires a solicitor. We can put you in touch with trusted solicitors and guide you through the process.
Houses are valued on a number of factors, such as:
- The location of the property
- The layout of the house
- Whether the house has had any extensions or updates
- The aesthetic of your house
- How your home compares to other houses on the market and those which have recently sold.
Here at easyProperty, we offer free property valuations (no matter if they’re face-to-face or virtual). How long a valuation will take depends on how big your house is and the circumstances leading you to sell but they typically take about an hour. Book your free home valuation here.
Yes, if your property is already listed in the market you can still use our services and get advice from our property experts. You can either instruct us for when your existing agreement ends or you can instruct us as an additional estate agent (depending on the terms of your existing agency agreement).
You’ll be pleased to hear that you don’t normally have to pay tax when selling your house! Capital Gains Tax (CGT) is a type of tax which is based on how much your home went up in value, so you’re taxed on the profit you make when you sell a property. However, this only applies to properties that aren’t your main home (such as a buy-to-let or a second home).
While you may not need to pay tax on selling your house, you should be mindful of stamp duty tax which is a tax you may need to pay when buying a new house worth over £125,000.
There are a number of costs involved with selling your house as well as documents you’ll need to have handy. Don’t worry, we’re here to make sure you have everything you need.
When it comes to paperwork, you’ll need to provide the following documents:
- Proof of your identity, such as a passport or driving licence
- The title deeds of the property (to prove that you own the home you want to sell)
- Shared freehold documentation (if your home has a share of freehold)
- A TA10 (also known as a fittings and contents form) which highlights what will be included in the house you sell
- An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) which assesses the energy efficiency of your home
- A management information pack (if your house is leasehold or if you pay any service charges)
- Details of your mortgage (such as how much you still owe and your account details)
Then there’s costs for you to consider, including:
- Estate agency fees
- Your EPC
- Removal costs
- Renovation costs (if you decide to renovate your home before selling)
- Porting a mortgage (this essentially involves taking out a new loan)
- Capital Gains Tax (CGT) which applies when you’re selling a property that isn’t your main home
