How it works
As well as offering a traditional high street Estate Agency service AT REDUCED RATES, we have a branch in Topsham, Devon UrPad Online also offer a brand new online service whereby you can sell or rent your property online, by uploading the details onto our website yourself, for a very low set fee.
Online fees: To sell, the fee is set at £299 inc VAT ; To let, the set fee is £119 inc VAT. These set fees could potentially save you thousands of pounds in standard agency fees.
As a regular high street agent, we do everything you would normally expect us to: we visit your property to confirm that the details are correct and answer any questions you may have; we arrange the viewings of prospective tenants and buyers for you, and we handle all the sale or rental negotiations for you. We market your property in exactly the same way as you would normally expect - on the big four property portals, as well as many of the smaller ones.
However, through creating your own property profile, uploading your details online (even though we check through thoroughly ourselves AND visit your property before they appear online), and show your propestive purchasers and tenants around your property yourself, we can pass on our savings to you.
So, this is how UrPad Online works:
- The tenant and sales enquiries received by UrPad Online are processed and qualified by the UrPad Online team.
- We will then arrange to visit your property to confirm that the details you have entered are correct and accurate.
- Viewings will be arranged at a mutually convenient time for both private Landlords and Property Owners to show tenant or prospective buyer the property.
- If and when you receive offers on your property, we handle all the negotiations on your behalf.
- Landlords pay just £119 inc VAT per property for this service until let;
- Property Owners pay a flat fee of £299 inc VAT until sold (no commission charged).
- Once you have agreed an offer for your property, you then handle the actual sale directly with your solicitors. If you would like us to handle this for you, we do offer an optional "add-on" service for an additional fee of £499 (payable on completion of the sale of your property), although this is by no means obligatory and is entirely your decision. You don't need to make up your mind now; you can decide at any time.
As with any Estate and Letting Agency, Urpad Online also offers tenant referencing but at a fraction of the cost of a traditional agent.

We upload it to the major UK property portals
Your property will be live on the major property portals within 72 hours of your details being received by us, and once we have visited your property, confirming that all your details are correct.
The major property portals we place your property on are Rightmove, Zoopla and Prime Location.
You receive enquiries until the property is sold or let.
A member of the UrPad Online team will initially call you to welcome you to UrPad Online and confirm with you that we have received your property request.
We will also take this opportunity to answer any questions that you may have and check with you that the process was simple and easy for you to use & understand.
You can then notify us of how you would like to receive notifications from prospective buyers or new tenants, for example by phone , email or text.
We will continue to contact you with details of interested parties until you inform us that your property has been sold (ie under offer) or that you have found a suitable new tenant for your rental property.
As part of our ongoing service to you we will contact you on a weekly basis to find out how the viewings have gone, discuss feedback from these viewings, and offer you any advice or help we can to ensure your property sells or lets as quickly as possible.
All your viewings will be arranged by UrPad Online at a time and date convenient to you. We will of course pre-qualify all prospective parties interested in your property.
You are in total control of your sale or let from start to finish. Nevertheless, if you do need that extra bit of help we have additional services available to you at a small fee to help ensure your property sells or lets quickly & efficiently.
PLEASE NOTE IF YOU ARE A TENANT WE CHARGE A SET RESERVATION FEE OF £349 Inc VAT IF YOU WISH TO RESERVE ANY PROPERTY WITH US.
