    As the title says, whats your minimum charge (for a residential property) and where abouts are you based?

    I'm not wondering what I can get away with, more whether I am too expensive in general on your average house ;)

    I'll start, my minimum charge is £15 and I'm from the south coast :thumbsup:

    £10 minimum for a little 2 bed house,

    Average house price, around £15-£17 recently trying to quote £20 for houses that used to be £15, worth a punt!

    Essex :cool:

    Birmingham, £8 front only and £10 small house (no access problems) minimum.

    Detached three bed regular wouldn't get away with more than £16 pm here I don't think

    £10 and I'll get my butt out the motor but i have a few cheaper as they are little flats etc where i work already
    Don't feel right telling someone with 3 windows a tenner
    But normal jobs £10 is minimum

    Hmm so the general consensus is about a tenner minimum charge. Except Jakes is a bit higher overall because he has a remote control button thingy :D :giggle:
    Hmmm... Maybe I am a fiver overpriced, although I am further south than any of you guys and that extra sun gets a premium :cool: Plus I'm slow and only do1 house an hour! :clap:

    If they're paying it and your not short of work go for it
    If you feel it's losing you jobs lower it
