In case the property includes heat and other functioning systems, we include in the offer a clause which allows you to get the seller pay for any repairs in faulty systems or gear provided that such flaws are suggested in writing in a set amount of days following the purchaser chooses entry. Please know about this, and instantly on choosing entry to the property, assess all systems and gear, and tell us if a written notice must be sent to the sellers solicitor within the set time limit, as the seller is then going to be responsible for the expense of repair or replacing. This doesn’t apply to the overall fabric of the building, you as the purchaser choosing it as you locate it, and generally with the advantage of a survey to lead you ahead.
We don’t arrange buildings insurance for customers properties unless instructed to do this. When you purchase and take over the property, the obligation for its security and upkeep is yours alone.

Single Couples Purchasing Property in Joint Names
For single couples purchasing property in joint names: We shall during the trade be drafting the Disposition. This is actually the title which passes ownership in the property from the seller to you both. The choice isn’t to set this clause in, meaning if one of you were to pass away, the other half doesn’t automatically transfer to the other. Instead, the half share would be doled out in accordance with the provisions of the Will. We’d be pleased to talk about this issue on you, and anticipate choosing your teachings as soon as you’ve had the chance to consider it. If we don’t hear from you to the contrary, we shall draw the title together with the survivor ship clause.We’ll order a stamp duty return form to be sent to HMRC and then your titles and records are filed in your name in the Land Register of Scotland. As a substitute to the latter we’re pleased to keep titles on behalf of customers at no cost.
