Do you know what you are buying?

The contract will have a section title GOODS SOLD WITH THE LAND.

This is normally listed as "All fixed floor coverings, window furnishings and electric light fittings".

You should consider whether this covers everything that you think is being sold with the property and if not, have the agent add a list to the contract.

A couple of examples that might help are.....

If the property has a swimming pool you should ask if the pool cleaning equipment is included in the sale.


If there is a wall mounted television you need to ask if the television is included in the sale, if not, ask whether the wall brackets are being removed. If the wall brackets are being removed you should ask who is covering the cost of repairing and painting the wall.

MAKE SURE THAT THE CONTRACT CLEARLY LISTS ANY INCLUSIONS OR EXCLUSIONS not covered by 'all fixed floor coverings, window furnishings and electric light fittings"
