Average Fees in 2018 and Changes to Default Fee Matrix

We are asked quite often about the typical fee rates surveyors are offering through our site. Each year we analyse these to check that our default fees are in line with the average fees being offered.

This year we have decided to share these with you, and below is the breakdown of the average fee delivered through our site over the course of 2018. Noticeable this year is an increase in the average fee at the ends of the scale. Although the 2-3 Bed £200-400K fee ranges are very similar to 2017, fees for smaller or cheaper properties, and larger more expensive properties, have increased, in some cases quite significantly.

Obviously there will be regional variations in fee rates, but these might help you when setting or reviewing your own fees.

Our default pricing has just been updated to reflect these, to ensure that new users have a realistic guide as to the starting point when setting their own fees when joining the site.

Quick to respond and took time to explain findings before sending full written report. Will definitely recommend Graham Gibbs Associates to friends.

I was put in touch with a number of local surveyors from this site (as the name suggests!) but the service from Matthew at Acorn Technical Associates has been exceptional. I have bought many properties in the past and this was by far the most comprehensive survey I have seen, which really help me to make the right decision with regards a prospective purchase and reduction in price.

The service I received after an enquriy was very good. However, it was all taken out of my hands when the solicitor took it over, so that I wasn't able to continue.
