What is Libermove?

Libermove is an online property platform to find and register property in Dalkeith, Midlothian, instantly and at zero cost.

What are the benefits?

Libermove enables you to determine the interest in your property for free, whilst you can find your dream home before it is on the market.

How does it work?

Libermove creates a new market place based around the introduction of an "Open" status. Like an amber traffic light, properties are not formally for sale, but the owner is interested to sell in the near future. You can contact the owner directly to get more information on the property and its status.

How much does it cost?

The Libermove platform is free. Should you decide to actively market your property for sale, you will need to purchase a Home Report and engage the services of conveyancer to complete the legal process. Libermove makes money by marketing services to help with selling your property.

How much could I save?

The short answer is 1,000s. Solicitors/agents charge a fixed fee or a percent of the sale price as an agency fee. Additional fees such as listing fees will also be payable. Many of these fees will be due even if you decide not to sell. You can register and set your property status instantly and at zero cost with Libermove.

I am interested to learn more about an open property, what do I do?

Libermove enables you to engage with property owners directly. You can send an email to the owner of a property on the property profile.

I have decided to sell my property, what do I need to do?

Our mission here at Libermove is to give you options. Once you've determined the interest in your property via "Open", you can actively market your property for sale by updating your status. "For Sale" status requires a Home Report, which can be purchased from a surveyor if you don't already have one.

What if my property is already for sale via a solicitor/agent?

This does not prevent you from registering with Libermove, what's more you can upload your existing Home Report and set your property status to "For Sale" straight away. As a seller you want to get the right exposure for your property to reach the right buyer and Libermove can help you do that.

Estate agents are contacting me requesting to sell my property, what should I do?

Libermove is all about giving you options, we do not dictate how you should sell your property. If you decide you want to go with an agent, our advice would be to negotiate hard and if you've already had interest in your property you should use this to get the lowest possible price for their services.

Do I need a Home Report?

A Home Report is a legal requirement when a property is being marketed for sale. Therefore, "For Sale" status requires a Home Report to be uploaded to the platform, whereas "Open" status does not. A Home Report can be purchased from a surveyor and uploaded directly to the platform.

Can I get my property on a portal such as Rightmove or Zoopla with Libermove?

No, portals such as these do not allow the consumer to access them directly.

What areas do you cover?

Libermove was born in Edinburgh, Scotland, and is initially focused on the Midlothian market. We're working to expand to other areas soon.
