Fees for 2017
I am a buyers agent. I look for homes that may not be on the open market & help my clients to acquire them. I work for the rich and famous, often for celebrities but I work for mere mortals too! Like the properties they buy my clients are all different and so I offer different services. Please call or email me and I will happily provide a quote. I offer different types of help depending on how much assistance you are looking for.
My ‘Quick check‘ service costs £100.00.
My ‘Pocket agent‘ service costs £600.00.
My bespoke buying service costs a retainer of £2,400 and then either;
- 3% of the eventual price you pay or
- 25% of any saving made on the asking price or
- A fixed up front fee of £12,000.
[When it comes to property the law states that estate agent fees must be quoted inclusive of VAT].
For those buying a second home or ‘buy-to-let’ property HMRC guidance notes & the more digestible Which? state that my fee (like the additional ‘2nd home Stamp Duty Land Tax‘) in certain circumstances can be set against future Capital Gains Tax or against CGT losses which at present can be carried forward indefinitely. You should double-check that this would be the case for you with your financial advisor.
I am delighted to write articles for blogs, newspaper or magazines – I am flattered to be asked. I charge £1 per word and will endeavour to turn the requested piece around in 48 hours.
For all other work I charge a day rate of £1,000 plus VAT.
