1. What information will I see when I subscribe to Repolist?
Repolist is a portal all of our data comes directly from the estate agent. When you look at a particular property you will see exactly the same information as the estate agent displays. This will include photos, floor plans, EPC certificates and any other information about the property. Our system also includes the agent contact details should you wish to make a viewing.

2. How long is the contract period for subscription?
Subscription is on a monthly basis with no tie-ins. You are free to cancel at any time.

3. Will I have contact details for the vendors of each property?
You will see contact details for the vendor’s agent but not the vendor directly.

4. Do you have repossessions in Scotland?
No, but we are working on it.

5. If I decide to purchase a property are there any further fees to pay?
No, Repolist is an information only service. We charge no fees should you choose to go ahead and purchase the property.

6. How do I arrange a property viewing?
Call the agent and make a viewing appointment just as you would with an ordinary purchase.

7. Do I have to offer the asking price?
No, you are always able to make offers. Also bear in mind that speed of purchase, as well as price, has a bearing on whether an offer will be accepted.

8. How do I work out the cost of refurbishment?
If you are not an experienced builder yourself you should get quotes from at least 3 trustworthy builders. There are lots of estimation tools available on the web.

9. How do I know what a property is actually worth?
Read our white paper on valuing properties.

10. Why has a property been repossessed?
99.9% of properties are repossessed because the mortgagor is in default on his mortgage payments. Properties can in theory be repossessed for other reasons, but we have not encountered any.
