Why do I need to complete a Property Information Form? 

The Property Information Form or “PIF” (it’s posh name is “TA6”) can look fairly daunting but the whole selling process could be delayed if the buyer and their Conveyancer don’t have all of the information they need on the form. Getting the information completed and providing all of the guarantees along with any supporting documentation at the very start of the transaction will speed up the whole process. 

Is it mandatory to complete a Property Information Form? 

No – although it does look suspicious when a Seller is unwilling to provide the Property Information Form. MG Legal’s expert Property Solicitors in Preston have experienced transactions which have fallen through when a seller has been unwillingness to provide the Property Information Forms.

What do I need to disclose in the Property Information Form? 

It is always best to provide all of the information you have and complete the form with as much information as possible. Whilst the principle of “caveat emptor” or “buyer beware” will apply to the purchase of a residential property, not providing information that you are aware of is considered a misrepresentation, which may be fraudulent, negligent or innocent.  
An innocent misrepresentation is a statement made where the seller has reasonable grounds to believe its truth however, if fraud or negligence is proved, then the buyer is entitled to seek rescission, damages or both. Rescission enables the Seller to treat the contract as non-existent. So, if the Seller purposefully mislead you or was careless enough not to provide information they knew about, then you, as a Buyer, may be able to take legal action. 
In the case of Morrell v Stewart 2015 the Seller was required to pay compensation of £33,000.00 after they failed to notify the Buyer of drainage problems that they were aware of.
