We work with a number of leading estate agents and introducers throughout the local area. The companies support us in our marketing services and this support’s value is reflected in what are called ‘referral fees’ of up to £50. This is a fee paid by Howarth and Hollings and is never an additional cost to clients.
Third Party Costs
In addition to our fees, you will be required to pay fees to third parties such as the following:
The fee to the Land Registry is for the registration of the transfer of the property. The fee payable will depend on the price of the property.

Timescales for Transactions
Whilst every transaction is different, we say, on average a transaction for a sale and purchase transaction can take place between 6-10 weeks. Again, every transaction is different and some transactions can take longer and some can take shorter. We will endeavour to do all we can to ensure a speedy transaction for you.
