Selling a property – what is a contract pack?
What is the contract pack?
- After you instruct us, we send out a contract pack to your buyer’s solicitors in order for them to raise enquiries on the property you are selling.
- This pack is put together by us, as a conveyancer for the seller, and will include the draft contract and any additional information pertinent to the sale.
What does a contract pack include?
- It includes the contract itself which details the particulars of the sale (yours and your buyer’s names, agreed price you are selling for, title number, property address in full etc). Your buyer’s solicitors have to approve this and let us know of any changes they would like to be made.
- The Fixtures, Fittings and Contents form and the Property Information form are also enclosed with the contract pack. The buyer’s solicitors will send this to your buyer to check and come back to them with any queries. These are standard protocol forms from the Law Society so it is a requirement that these are completed by yourself.
- Another form called the Leasehold Information Form will be enclosed if the property is leasehold.
- The title documents (title register and title plan) from the Land Registry will also be sent to the buyer’s solicitors as part of the contract pack. Any documents referred to in the title register will also be enclosed with this (conveyances, transfers etc). If the property is leasehold, a copy of the lease will also be included.
- Any certificates or guarantees will also be sent to your buyer’s solicitors so it is important that you send these to us.
