Estate agent

The estate agent is the person who markets the property on behalf of the seller. They usually take a percentage from the sale as a fee.

Estate agents can be appointed as a sole agent, where they have exclusive rights to market the property, or as joint agents, where they have to compete with another agency or agencies.

The estate agent may often recommend a solicitor to conduct your conveyancing, but you are under no obligation to follow their recommendation.

Instead, it's worth considering a completely impartial conveyancing firm like In-Deed. Want to know more about what we can do and how low our fees are? Call us on 0800 038 6886. Our lines are open 7 days a week for your convenience.
