Kitchen Fixtures and Fittings

People often ask when selling their home, what are the rules and laws you have to stick to regarding the fixtures and fittings in the Kitchen within the house, and interestingly there isn’t any law that actually specifies what should be left in the home and also what should be removed.


With fitted Kitchens and Bathrooms being such an important part of the house now, you can  avoid any conflict by including an inventory of each in the sales contract, within this it should state what will be left and also what will be taken when the vendor moves. If you do not create an inventory the usual assumption is that all fittings will be removed and all fixtures will stay, meaning that if any fixture is removed without the buyer being notified the vendor could end up with a bill or having to pay for the cost of replacing the fixture in question.
