Greyfox offer a variety of services and products related to the moving process that are provided by third party companies and we believe in being transparent in declaring these commissions so that our customers can make informed choices. Examples of these services can be from recommending a solicitor to use for conveyancing or probate, or a surveyor to check the suitability of your proposed purchase, to less visible products such as rent guarantee insurance. Greyfox are often remunerated by the companies that provide these services by being paid a referral commission. The companies involved should not add the fee to their standard charges and there should therefore be no adverse effect on the end users’ costs. We consider that the companies have been chosen primarily not on the referral commission but on their track record of providing a quality service to our clients. Where Greyfox provide some administration aspect to a product such as arranging an EPC or rent guarantee and the cost is charged as a Greyfox invoice, then our fee will be added to the supplier’s invoice and the cost of the product will be confirmed prior to purchase. Below is a list of the related services that we provide, along with the related commissions likely to be paid to Greyfox for the referral. Where some services are price specific or the supplier costs vary, we have put a range. Where the related parties are VAT registered then the prevailing rate of VAT will be applied in addition to the fee.
