Your property

  • Find as much paperwork as you can for your property, from the tme you originally bought it.
  • List all of the work you’ve had done on the property - from electrics to extensions.
  • Find copies of any tmber/damp guarantees and safety certicates for boilers etc.

Services

  • Know which local authority you’re in and have a copy of your latest council tax bill
  • Note down the service providers for your home such as gas, water, electricity, phone, broadband etc.

Legal

  • Find any paperwork relating to any shared access (if applicable) to your property (garden or driveway)
  • Make sure you know which boundaries belong to you and which ones belong to your neighbours
  • Secure quotes from legal companies and ask them if they can prepare contracts of sale in advance of receiving an offer
  • Make sure the legal company includes all fees, including stamp duty, legal costs, bank transfer fees, land registry fees and VAT. Ask them to confirm this in writing
