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.

If we are buying in Kidlington, will I need to get a chancel search?

Churches in Kidlington where a chancel search may be necessary include Shipton-on-Cherwell Holy Cross, St John the Baptist and St Mary the Virgin.
