Tepilo

Who are Tepilo and what are their pros and cons?

Founded in 2009, Tepilo is an online estate agents who claim they have redesigned the property selling process around the customer. They say that they charge a fraction of the cost to help you sell quickly and for the best possible price. On average, Tepilo say that they find a buyer in under 60 days, save customers £5,120 in fees, and achieve 98% of the last advertised price.

They have an experienced team to help you at each step of selling, including valuers, negotiators, and sales progressors. You even have your own dedicated negotiator and sales progressor through the whole journey until completion.

Steps to selling through Tepilo:

  1. Create the ad - you can either create your property listing yourself, or ask Tepilo to. They will send one of their local agents to visit and verify your home. They can also take photos, draw up floor plans and produce an EPC. The listing goes live on all major property sale websites such as Rightmove and Zoopla.
  2. Hold viewings - potential buyers can book viewings for your home online, once you've said what your availability is. Tepilo then asks for feedback after the viewing, which is passed on to you.
  3. Negotiating - Tepilo will run checks on anyone who makes an offer to ensure they have the funds in place and are ready to move. They can help you with advice once you're made an offer.
  4. Maintain the links in the chain - Tepilo work on keeping the property chain in tact by communicating with solicitors and agents throughout the chain.
  5. Completing - the final step is exchanging and completing, which Tepilo will help you through.

Tepilo Fees

Tepilo charge £895 for their classic package. This includes:

  • Ads on Rightmove, Zoopla and Prime Location
  • Expert support
  • Home verification visit
  • Account management
  • Legal set up
  • Sales progression
  • Mortgage advice
  • Professional photography
  • Professional floorplan


Watch out for Tepilo's extra charges - they're hidden within their FAQ drop downs underneath the classic package. They offer a Viewings Package for an extra £360 where they can manage and host your viewings. Unfortunately Tepilo don't offer a no-sale, no-fee option like some of their competitors. They do allow you to pay on completion or 10 months after completion, whichever is first.

EPC is an extra, at a cost of £90. They claim this is because some people already have a valid EPC. 

Solicitor fees are not included. The base fee for their conveyancers is £699 plus disbursements plus VAT. However if you are on their pay later package, and choose not to use their conveyancers, there is a £360 surcharge to opt out of this service.

Charlotte Melia was so helpful on the telephone in discussing the useful services provided by the Property Buying Company. No hard sell, just professional advice discussed in an open and friendly manner to (in my case) someone with little knowledge of options to gat a fast sale guaranteed. I'd definitely recommend speaking to this team, and I would do so again in future if I had this need for speed again. Many thanks Charlotte!
