While the costs of services such as conveyancing (-10%), surveys (-24%) and removals (-15%) have decreased over the ten year period, and even with the additional cost of a HIP, the cost of moving is still lower than a decade ago.
In addition, the stamp duty holiday for properties under £175,000 that has been in place since September 2008 has added an extra saving for homemovers who have not had to pay the land tax.
Rosemary Rogers, Director, reallymoving.com said: "I’m sure homemovers will be delighted to hear that the cost of moving has decreased significantly over the past decade. This is mainly due to the increased competition amongst service providers and the reduced overheads that come with doing business online."
