How much does it cost to move house?

What you'll need

If you're in the process of moving house, one of the first questions you're likely to ask is how much it's going to cost. There are many different expenses involved in moving, from the cost of hiring a removal company to the fee for changing your address on official documents.

Additional moving fees

The first cost to consider in addition to the cost of moving, is the sale price of your home. When calculating how much it will cost to move house, make sure you include all associated fees, such as stamp duty and estate agent fees. If you're moving to a new home that's more expensive than your current one, you may also need to pay mortgage indemnity insurance. This is an insurance policy that protects the lender in case you can't repay your mortgage due to unforeseen circumstances, such as losing your job or becoming ill.

Transporting belongings

The next major cost to consider when moving house is the cost of actually moving all your belongings from one property to another. If you're not using the services of a professional removal company, you'll need to factor in the cost of renting a van or hiring a truck. You may also need to pay for storage costs if you're not able to move into your new property straight away.

Official documents & the moving process

Once you've moved into your new home, there are still some costs associated with the moving process that you'll need to consider. These costs can include things like changing your address on official documents, connecting or disconnecting utilities, and redecorating costs. You can see an easy breakdown of the moving process to help you plan ahead with our checklist for moving house.

If you're unsure about how much it will cost to move house, why not use our moving costs calculator? This handy tool will help you calculate the cost of moving based on your location and the size of your home. So, whether you're moving across town or abroad, our costs calculator can help make the process a little bit easier.

Average Moving Costs

Moving house can be an expensive proposition, and there are a number of costs that should be considered when making the decision to move. The moving house costs below are based on buying and selling the average UK property, at a price of £234,370 as of January 2020. The average cost of moving house in the UK is £8,885.66, which includes stamp duty, legal fees, moving costs, and estate agent fees. However, this figure can vary significantly depending on the individual circumstances of each move. For example, if you are moving to a more expensive property, you will likely incur higher moving costs. Similarly, if you are selling your property yourself, you will not have to pay estate agent fees. With these factors in mind, it is important to carefully consider all of the moving house costs before making a decision to move.
