Costs to consider when moving and professional service providers who can help

You will require a number of different services when it comes to your next move, and each one has an associated cost which you need to consider.

Below you will find our “cost of moving calculator” which provides a quick overview of the costs involved in moving house. Should you wish to receive quotes from any of our tried and tested professional service providers then this can be obtained automatically.

The professional service costs considered within the cost of moving calculation include:


When buying a home you need to know that what you’re buying is fit and safe. Whatever type of condition report you require, from a Homebuyers Survey to a Building Survey, we can point you in the right direction. We only recommend companies who we have worked with ourselves.


Whether you are a first-time buyer or a current homeowner looking for a more suitable mortgage deal, our mortgage broker can help you to make the right choice.


At Paton & Co we only recommend solicitors who provide excellent legal service when it comes to buying and selling property. A good solicitor plays a huge part in the transaction so it is important that you use someone you know or who comes recommended.


These firms understand what it means to move. Their industry knowledge is at your service to ensure your move is as seamless as it can be.
