Advice on selling a lettings business or estate agents business in London

The price you can ask for your lettings agency or estate agency will, of course, depend on a number of factors, including the number of properties you have on the books, the amount of fees involved, the desirability of the agency in terms of its location and reputation, and whether the price includes any assets such as premises and IT systems.

If you’ve not yet found a buyer and networking is not your thing, find a reputable business broker or business transfer agent: their sales commission is usually easily justified by finding a buyer for your lettings business or estate agency business efficiently and at a good price. We work alongside a number of good transfer agents and are happy to give you a recommendation if you need one.

Get the best deal: use specialist lettings and estate agency sale solicitors

Once you’ve found a potential buyer, you’ll need help with the legal process of selling your lettings agency or estate agency. Find a solicitor who has experience of small business sales or, best of all, a firm like ours with specific selling experience in the industry – your local high street solicitor won’t have the necessary knowledge or know-how for this type of work.

We act for sellers and buyers of small and medium sized businesses across England and Wales, including London, and are familiar with the challenges within your industry. We will help you structure and negotiate the right deal for your sale – whether you are desperate for the cash and keen to make a clean exit or are happy to agree to deferred payment and remain involved in some capacity in the business – and will make sure your sale agreement contains the necessary warranties, indemnities and disclosures to protect your position.
