I am selling my house with two estate agents, do I have to pay both if I sell?

I would recommend you stick to one agent. Joint agents won't care for your needs as much as a sole agent, this is due to competition. You will reach more potential buyers and receive higher offers, but you will have to pay more fees. There will be many greedy agents who will want you to accept a low offer so they can get the commission - as the other agents will get none.
I hope this helps

You would usually only pay the agent that finds your buyer however please make sure that both agents know of each other and that you have signed a dual agency agreement otherwise you could be liable for 2 sets of fee's.

It depends very much on what type of contract you have with them. If you have a multi-agency contract with both, the chances are you will only pay one fee. However, if either agent has a sole agency or sole selling rights agreement, you may well end up paying two fees.
Here is a blog I wrote on going multi-agency http://bit.ly/wIhtUp Good luck with your sale
