Cost of moving home tops £10k

The cost of moving home in the UK has reached a record £10,414, rising to £24,585 in London, a study by conveyancing firm Reallymovingreveals. Homeowners pay stamp duty of £4,625, estate agent fees of £3,356, £1,490 for conveyancing, £408 in surveys, £480 to a removal firm and £55 on an energy performance certificate. However the sum is less for first-time buyers, who dodge some fees such as stamp duty, and pay £1,613 on average and £5,684 in the capital.
