Should I organize a private purchase of items on the Fixtures and Fittings form?
This would be very unwise as the Fixtures and Fittings Form (TA10) forms part of the contract, and it lists all the items that the seller is planning to leave at the property with an agreed price for anything they want money for.
To try to organise a private sale outside of this clear and controlled process may result in difficulties later on in the process, which is precisely why this form is in place. If you want something to remain that’s not listed on the Fixtures and Fittings Form, raise a query through your solicitor so that negotiations may be formally carried out.

How is stamp duty tax calculated and what will we need to pay on a £1063000 property?

Can we bypass paying out for SDLT rates?
Homeward Legal do not recommend property buyers get involved with any stamp duty mitigation scheme, because these schemes are highly expensive and unreliable.
I am purchasing a house with AIB Group - is there anything we need to be aware of?
Traditionally, it was usually straightforward for solicitors to act for both a buyer and their lender. House buyers should consider that some lenders are now reducing their 'solicitor panel', resulting in greater legal costs for home buyers if their conveyancer cannot act for the lender. We, fortunately, will act on behalf of all major lenders.
