We have a network of supporting service providers
We work very closely with Warren&Co Independent Financial Advisors, who provide ‘fee free’ mortgage advise with no hidden costs, unlike some local agents who charge a fee for their services. They get paid by the lender at the end of the process, so you will receive expert, honest, advice specifically shaped around your scenario – and it won’t cost you a penny.

We also work closely with a carefully selected team of conveyancers, energy assessors, and maintenance contractors for any additional needs you may have.
How can I make my home more attractive to purchasers?
Preparing your home for viewers is important. It will not only ensure that your property sells faster but for a higher sale price; potentially adding thousands of pounds to its value. Please read our article to discover how decluttering, kerb appeal, fix and clean, light and airy and getting the smells right are so important to make your house more attractive to purchasers.
When should I instruct a conveyancer or solicitor?
We recommend that you appoint a conveyancer as soon as, or before your property commences marketing. In a fast-moving housing market this will give you a head start and is especially important for leasehold properties where the conveyancing process typically takes longer.
How long does a house sale normally take?
The average house sale currently takes between 3 to 4 months to complete from the point of sale. This can vary, however, depending on the length of the chain, the source of your buyers funds, whether it is leasehold or freehold and how quickly all parties act.
Do I need to be at home during viewings?
No. We will accompany all viewings, and, in our experience, buyers and tenants are more likely to provide us with constructive feedback when the owner isn’t present. We will always inform you in advance of all viewings and are happy to hold a spare key if it’s more convenient.
How much does an Energy Performance Certificate cost?
A valid EPC is required prior to marketing property for both sale or rent and costs £120 (£100+VAT).
What brings down property value?
There are many things that could bring down property value. Many of them such as the local area, crime rates, transport links and schooling will be out of your control. However, getting your property in peak condition is crucial for maximising the potential value of your home. Try and view your property as a potential purchaser and remember that the first impression of a property is from the outside. Internally declutter to make it look as spacious as possible.
How long will it take for my house to go to market?
We can normally launch your property to the market within 48 hours. Once we have received the go ahead, we will need to arrange a suitable time to visit your property to take measurements and photographs so we can prepare the listing. We will also need to undertake Anti-Money Laundering checks and you will need to complete our Terms and Conditions and a Property Information Questionnaire.
How long does a house valuation take?
We always allocate one hour for a house valuation. This allows plenty of time for our valuer to examine the property both internally and externally. We will then be able to sit down and discuss with you a recommended marketing price to ensure that your property sells within your desired timescales.
What does a valuer look for?
During the valuation the valuer will examine the size of the building, condition, age, fixtures, layout and design. Ease of vehicle access, garages and outbuildings are also considered along with local buyer demand.
How much does a property valuation cost UK?
If Michael Tuck Estate Agents are valuing your property for the purpose of selling then we will complete the valuation or market appraisal free of charge. However, if you require a valuation for mortgage or insurance purposes then it is likely that you will need to instruct an RICS registered surveyor or similar.
What does property valuation involve?
Before you market your property with Michael Tuck Estate Agents you will need to decide what price you want to ask for. Our Valuation Managers are experts in the local housing market and will be able to advise you an asking price that will result in a successful sale. Using our many years of experience we will show you comparable evidence of similar properties in the area are being marketed and sold for. We can also advise you on how to prepare your property to ensure that you maximise the potential value of your home.
