  • advice apopreciated

    just retired at 63, we are thinking of moving, estimated value of property ia £4250 and looking to buy for as much as is left but recall that 14 yrs ago when we moved into the current property we lost about £12K in dead money (estate agents, stamp duty etc)

    As far as I can tell we would now stand to expect to lose about £20K in the same way, ie total cost involved in buying and selling. Any comment would be welcome please.

    apologies that should be 'advice appreciated'

      Unfortunately, everything gets more expensive in our country, esspecially official fees.

        Could you increase your selling price to cover the costs of your move? Only way round it i suspect.

          Hi Retired Guy

          We have just sold our house and merged in with our elderly mother, making her a granny annex.

          Quite a long difficult process but very worthwhile for all and has saved us a fortune in many ways?

          What do you think?

            Everything wouldn't be the same as 14 years ago, i guess the difference of 8k won't be that big loss at all. Where are you planning to buy the property by the way?
