Cost of moving reaches £10,400

 Reallymoving’s yearly cost of moving research shows homeowners are paying £10,414 on average to move home, with Londoners paying £24,585.

Our cost of moving analysis, featured on Which? today showed that moving house can cost more than you might expect. However, a large proportion of it is down to Stamp Duty, in line with the increase in property prices.

Which means that first time buyers have seen average costs of £1,613 when moving, or £5,684 in London. Without paying for Stamp Duty, estate agency fees and EPCs, first time buyers fare better than those buying and selling, especially in the capital.
