Fees

Fees for 2017

I am a buyers agent. I look for property that is often not on the open market & help to acquire them for my clients. 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 levels of help depending on what you might be 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 the saving made on the guide price or
  • £12,000 payable up front.
[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‘) can be off-set against future Capital Gains Tax or indeed against potential 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 £2,500 plus VAT.
