Buyers and Sellers pay additional costs when they complete a real estate transaction. Often these are called "closing costs"; the Agreement of Purchase and Sale refers to the day ownership changes as the "Completion Date" and are more formally known as "completion costs".
Cameron Nolan assists clients to estimate their anticipated costs and offers a form for calculating these expenses. Some use a less accurate budget as a percentage of the purchase price, however, Cameron prefers to help with more detail which is realted to your actual needs. Obtain quotes from your service suppliers (lawyer, utilities, mover, etc.) and together with the information Cameron supplies, you should be able to predict your costs.
