Q.

We are going to buy a property, is it that necessary that property searches are ordered?

What do we need to know about 'fixtures and fittings'?

A.

Buyers are often frustrated by confusion regarding which fixtures and fittings ought to be included. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction. This makes the completion of a fixtures and fittings form essential.
