ASKING PRICE The price of the property as advertised.

SET UP COSTS These are costs associated with the purchase of the property.

The Solicitors Fees are the costs for undertaking the legal work. This fee does not include the disbursements. The RDA Research Fee of £2,000 covers our expenses in relation to sourcing and identifying the property as an ideal investment in terms of asset growth and rental potential. It also includes our assistance with the purchase process. RDA monitors and progress chases property purchases and assists with all/any matters arising on behalf of our clients.

The fee is payable in two parts. £1,000 is due upon a client’s decision to purchase. This initial payment is not refundable but can be carried forward to an alternative purchase should the sale fall through. The balance of £1,000 is payable upon exchange of contracts of sale. When a mortgage is required the cost of the lender's arrangement fee and survey also need to be factored in.

PURCHASE COSTS These are the direct costs of purchasing the property. Assumed Purchase Price is the price which RDA anticipates being able to negotiate on behalf of the client. Estimated Update is based on RDA's recommendations for refurbishment. Stamp Duty Land Tax is the tax payable to the UK Government when you buy property.

OWNER'S ANNUAL OPERATING COSTS Rental Agent's Fees are deducted monthly by the rental agent. Ground Rent is an annual fee charged by the Freeholder of a Leasehold property.

Maintenance Charges are a share of the costs of the maintenance of the building and the building insurance but do not include occasional internal maintenance costs.
