TA 10 – Fixtures and Fittings Form
The TA 10 Form is known as the Fixtures and Fittings Form (or the Fitting and Contents Form). This form clearly identifies what is and is not included on the sale of a property. It’s to be completed by the seller.
The Law Society provides a sample of this form, you can download it for free here: TA10 form specimen.
The form is not compulsory, but it is highly recommended to avoid any problems.
How The Fixtures and Fittings Form Works
This form will list every fixture and fitting that is included in the property sale. This forms will become part of the sale contract and is therefore legally binding. The seller will be in breach of contract if any items are taken which should have been left.
If any fixtures and fittings are missing, the buyer should contact their conveyancer straight away. They will then correspond with the seller’s conveyancer in an attempt to have the items returned. If the seller refuses to comply, the buyer can take legal action against the seller.
If significant items have been taken, for example bathroom fittings or flooring, this would be a fundamental breach of the contract. In serious cases the buyer would actually have the option cancel the sale completely.
