PROPERTY INFORMATION FORM

About this form

This form is completed by the seller to supply the detailed information and documents which may be relied upon for the conveyancing process.

Definitions

* 'Seller' means all sellers together where the property is owned by more than one person
* 'Buyer' means all buyers together where the property is being bought by more than one person
* 'Property' includes all buildings and land within its boundaries

Instructions to the seller

The answers should be prepared by the person or persons who are named as owner on the deeds or Land Registry title or by the owner’s legal representative(s) if selling under a power of attorney or grant of probate or representation. If there is more than one seller, you should prepare the answers together.
It is very important that your answers are accurate. If you give incorrect or incomplete information to the buyer (on this form or otherwise, in writing or in conversation, whether through your estate agent or solicitor or directly to the buyer), the buyer may make a claim for compensation from you or refuse to complete the purchase.
You should answer the questions based upon information known to you (or, in the case of legal representatives, you or the owner). You are not expected to have expert knowledge of legal or technical matters.
If you do not know the answer to any question, you must say so. If you are unsure of the meaning of any questions or answers, please ask your solicitor. This form can be completed in full, in part or not at all. Omissions or delay in providing some information may delay the sale.
If you later become aware of any information which would alter any replies you have given, you must inform your solicitor immediately. This is as important as giving the right answers in the first place. Do not change any arrangements concerning the property with anyone (such as a tenant or neighbour) without first consulting your solicitor.
Please give your solicitor any letters, agreements or other papers which help answer the questions. If you are aware of any which you are not supplying with the answers, tell your solicitor. Some of the questions provide ‘Lost’ as an answer. If you indicate that some of the documentation is lost you may need to obtain copies at your own expense. Also pass to your solicitor any notices you have received concerning the property and any which arrive at any time before
completion of the sale.
Please also complete TA10 Fittings and Contents Form. This may form part of the contract between you and the buyer and must be completed accurately.
