Business Sales

We charge a flat fee of 3% + Vat to sell an estate agency business which is based on the eventual sale contract price. We work on a ‘No Sale No Fee’ basis with our fees payable upon the day of legal completion. Our fees are inclusive of all normal promotional costs , but should a transaction necessitate extra ordinary costs, these will be agreed between the parties prior to being acted upon.


We charge 3% + Vat of the agreed purchase price for all acquisitions over a value of £100,000, and we agree a flat fee from the outset for all acquisitions under £100,000 (based upon both value and an estimate of the work involved).


Every business, every person, every problem, and every solution is different, so it would be misleading to promote a “one size fits all” fee scale as individual problems require individual solutions. So at Ideology we will undertake to meet with you initially (free of charge) and discuss the nature of challenges that concern you, prior to submitting a written fee proposal for your approval. However, having signed and accepted our fee proposal, you will be required to pay a 50% deposit as goodwill against Ideology Consulting commencing the contract.


We will meet with you for a consultation meeting free of charge in an effort to understand and agree the nature of the assistance that you require. After which, we will submit an outline fee proposal for your consideration and prior to commencing work.
