What fixtures and fittings can the seller remove from the property?
Usually a seller will complete a Fixtures and Fittings Form outlining the items to be included in the sale. This will normally be attached to the Contract. The buyer’s property solicitor or conveyancing lawyer should send this to the buyer to check this carefully. The seller is entitled to remove any ‘fittings' but must leave any ‘fixtures'. A fixture is generally something that is attached to the property such as kitchen units, or doors and garden gates. A fitting is something that is free standing, like a wardrobe. If there are any specific items you wish to remain at the property please advice your conveyancing lawyer in advance of exchange of contracts.
