How can I get a property transfer pack?

Buying & selling your home

1. What is a Management information pack and why do I need one?

Once you have agreed to sell your property and have instructed a Solicitor to represent you, we can provide you with a Management Information pack. Our Management Information packs provide a comprehensive guide to the property that is being sold and includes the Law Society’s Leasehold Property enquiry form (LPE1) or the Freehold Management Enquiries form (FME1).

We understand that the selling and buying of property is a stressful time and we strive to ensure that we provide the information that you require in a timely manner. We have dedicated administration teams that will assist your Solicitor in order to provide all of the information/documentation required as part of the sale process. Please see below table highlighting what information we contain in the Management Information pack as well as our fee for providing this information.
