The TA6 Form, otherwise known as the Property Information Form, is a form that is completed by the Seller to give the buyer critical information about the property. The form contains a number of important questions which must be answered honestly and in as much detail as possible.
The form is one of three standard Law Society forms that property Sellers complete when selling a property. The other two are the TA10 Form (Fixtures and Fittings) and the TA7 Form (Leasehold Information).
The Property Information Form covers a wide range of information about the property, including rights and informal arrangements, notices, proposals, disputes and complaints. But more on that later. In the meantime, you can download a sample TA6 Form by clicking here.
The TA6 is a detailed questionnaire for Sellers that covers a broad range of information about the concerned property. It is divided into 14 sections, each covering a different category. In this section we’ll give you a detailed overview of what’s contained in the TA6 Form and how to fill it out.
This section covers property boundaries (no surprises there!). It should include information about where they lie and any shared boundaries with neighbouring properties.
This section can include disputes with neighbouring properties regarding boundaries, and disputes with the management company if you have a leasehold property, or perhaps disputes with your Local Authority.
The TA6 will ask for an overview of your situation to let the buyer know about your onward plans and moving timeline.
The Property Information Form will include information regarding planned future developments in the area, and any correspondence with the local authority or neighbours.
This section of the TA6 should include information about the cost to insure the property and whether there are any special conditions with the property that require bespoke insurance.
The parking situation of the property. It can include things like whether there is on or off-street parking, or any allocated spaces.
Information about any Japanese knotweed that could affect the property, potential flooding, and other environmental risks or matters. This section also references the energy performance of the property. The energy performance is measured by the EPC (Energy Performance Certificate) which rates how efficient a property is and must be provided when a property is sold.
This is particularly important for a leasehold property. It will include information like ground rent and service charges or the maintenance of the property.
This section of the Property Information Form should contain certificates for any extension or building work that has been carried out on the property that has required planning permission.
Any cover for work or objects on or in the property. Such as damp proofing, electrical works, underpinning, solar panels, etc.
