What are Preliminary Enquiries?

In the event that you require any additional information or clarification from ourselves, please do not hesitate to contact a member of our team.

Preliminary enquries are a standard set of questions asked of the seller's solicitor by the buyer's solicitor. This list will include:

  • BOUNDARIES: It is vital to establish exactly what the boundaries of the property are and who is responsible for the maintenance of hedges and fences.
  • DISPUTES: Are there any disputes relating to the property, e.g disputes with neighbours.
  • RIGHTS OF WAY: check whether there is any footpath or right of way through the property and on shared access with neighbours, such as a driveway.
  • SERVICES: check if the utilities reach the property through a neighbour's property or if these are shared with a neighbour.
  • PLANNING CONSTRAINTS: check if any alterations have met local planning requirements and that building regulation consent has been received.
  • RESTRICTIVE COVENANTS: whether the deeds contain certain forbidden specifics, such as keeping pets, painting the property's exterior or even on the use of Christmas decorations!
  • GUARANTEES OR INSURANCE POLICIES
  • INCLUSIVE LIST OF CONTENTS: It is vital to establish and clearly list exactly what is to be included as part of the sale and what is to be removed.
  • LEASEHOLD: If the property is leasehold, check whether the seller is up to date with ground rent and service charges.
