Frequently Asked Questions Our answers to the most commonly asked questions.

Will I be selling or letting my home by myself?

No. You are NOT selling or letting your home by yourself.

Once you have listed your home on our online platform, your primary role is merely to provide informed property viewings for any interested parties and to negotiate the sale/let price of your property. We assist you throughout via phone, email, WhatsApp and more as well as providing useful guides such as:

Why is MoveSelf so affordable? What's the catch?

There isn't any catch. We're honest and transparent about our fees, unlike many other estate agents.

The premise behind MoveSelf is to move property yourself. By that statement we mean that it will inevitably require slightly more legwork from yourself - it's your responsibility to create your listing (it will only be published subject to our review process), respond to enquiries and negotiate offers via our slick management platform. If you ever require expert advice throughout the process our agents are always here to assist you. And if you require our profesional sales progression service to guide you through to completion we can provide that too.

Are there any hidden fees?

No. All our fees are listed on our pricing page. But remember that if you are selling a property you will require a conveyancing solicitor to transfer ownership of your property (there are other charges associated with this process, such as Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT)). You will also require a valid Energy Performance Certificate to list your property with us unless a valid EPC already exists. We also provide optional professional services such as photography, floor plans, tenant credit checks, references, sales progression and more.

We can provide all of the aforementioned services at the most affordable prices around.

Why don't MoveSelf advertise with Rightmove?

Advertising with Rightmove would cost us substantially more, and as a result of this we could not offer property advertising for free. At the moment we believe that the exposure provided by our existing free plans (over 32 million hits per month cumulatively) provides the most optimal advertising package for our customers.

Is MoveSelf the right choice for me?

Not necessarily! (Yikes, did we just say that?)

You must be a competent computer user - competent enough to have an email address and be able to register an account with us (if you can do this, you will find using our management platform easy peasy!). You will also need to be relatively confident - confident enough to show people around your property if required, and confident enough to negotiate your asking price.

If you prefer meeting your estate agent face-to-face we're probably not the right choice for you. However if live chat, phone calls and emails are up your street (pardon the pun) then walk this way!

How long do MoveSelf take to respond to emails and support requests?

Our service-level agreement stipulates that we should provide responses to any queries within 2 business hours. We often provide responses much sooner than this.

Do you provide telephone support?

Yes we do. If you try calling us you will be redirected to an automated voicemail system. But fear not! When you leave a message a ticket will be instantly created in our ticket management software and an agent will review the content. If the request is of an urgent nature we will call you back immediately. Otherwise we will prioritise your request accordingly. We work this way so that we can provide the most efficient support to all property vendors.

What other support methods do you provide?

There are multiple ways you can contact MoveSelf. Phone, email, website, live chat, WhatsApp and more! You can also send an SMS/text message to our phone number (at your normal network rate) and a ticket will be automatically created in our ticket management software for us to action!
