With Southgate Estates, you will be offered fair, open, and honest fees with no hidden extras. Fees are charged on a no-sale, no-fee basis and are based on the sale price of the property being sold. Our fee is 1.5%, including VAT, of the final sale price of your home (or 1.25% plus VAT).

Whether it takes one viewing or 100 viewings to sell, the fee remains the same. You can cancel your agreement with us at any time by providing one week’s notice. There are no cancellation fees, so if you decide not to sell or want to switch agencies, you won’t be charged.   If the property doesn’t complete, you won’t incur any charges.

Our Director's comments on fees...

“It is always my intention to keep the fees we charge to a minimum. In order to provide the high standards of estate agency that will result in the best sale prices, there are standards that have to be met. Cutting corners or not having enough resources to be there for you when you need us will result in a much more stressful experience for all involved. It certainly isn’t ideal for our clients and it’s not the way I like to operate. If you are looking solely at fees, Southgate Estates won’t be the cheapest, but we most certainly won’t be the most expensive either. Whether you are selling a one-bedroom flat or a country home, your best interests will always come first. If we don’t charge enough, we simply can’t provide the service worthy of one of the biggest and most important transactions of your life.”
– Jonathan Newall, Director
