  3. Notices & Proposals – any works due to be carried out by a neighbour, local council or business that could impact the property

  5. Guarantees & Warranties – copies of any applicable guarantees should be provided (originals provided upon completion)
  6. Council Tax – details of the council tax band
  7. Environmental Issues – details of flooding & radon gas for example
  8. Formal & Informal Arrangements – informal rights of way or access, maintenance agreements or parking
  9. Other Charges – e.g. freehold rent or maintenance charges
  10. Occupiers – other adult occupants or tenants
  11. Transaction Information – when would you hope to complete the sale (non binding)
  12. Services – testing of electrics & central heating system and energy suppliers
  13. Connection to Utilities & Services – whether the property has mains supplies or private
  14. Signature of Seller/Sellers & Date – this should be current so if your property has been on the market for some time you may be asked to provide an updated version.

If you are unsure about what information to provide or have a general query about completing the form then please do not hesitate to contact us.

  10. Stock of Fuel – e.g. LPG, Oil, Wood
  11. Other Items – any other items not covered on the form
  12. Signature & Date – this should be current so if your property has been on the market for some time you may be asked to provide an updated version.

Where additional sums have been agreed please let us know so that the amount can be added to the contract to ensure it is paid on the completion date.

Please note that the Fittings and Contents Form will form part of the contract and is legally binding so if you need to make any changes to the information provided, please let us know as soon as possible, prior to exchange of contracts, so that we can inform the buyer’s solicitors.
