Reply To: advise on costs of buying a property.



You can work on between 10 and 12% of the purchase price, but there are varying factors as you say you have a mortgage, the bank would charge an opening commission of 1 to 1.5%, lawyer about the same amount, then you would have purchase tax and this is 7% dependant on the amount actually declared. Also notary fees and miscellaneous.

You will need a break down form the lawyer but you should not have paid more than 14,600 by the looks of it.

One of the lawyers on this forum would be able to help more but will probably need a bit more information
