If you have 2 estate agents selling your property, do you have to pay both when a sale is made?

We are considering having a second agent to sell our property but not sure on where we stand on fee's

  • As long as you have finished the sole agency period with your current agent then you will only have to pay the estate agent who introduces the buyer.

  • If you have them as joint agents you may have to: obviously the market is sticky and your asking price should be realistic - otherwise even with umpteen agents you will never sell. Does your agent have a board up? Are they advertising on Rightmove, findaproperty and of course Zoopla? Have you had any viewings? What was the feedback? Does your home need a bit of a make over to create street appeal/ interior ambience ie to make it more attractive? Please see attached RICS guide. thanks

  • No as long as the intial period of contract has expired you can appoint two on a joint agency basis. The fee is winner takes all. The argument is professional pride and a 50:50 chance of a fee even with marketing costs will push them harder to sanction the sale
