Introducing a ‘clean and tidy’ clause for property buyers?
A recent news article shared us that was on the Daily Mail website speaks of the introduction of a ‘clean and tidy’ clause when it comes to selling and buying of property.
Though an inventory will exist when it comes to knowing exactly what you are buying when you look to acquire a property, there can be many times that the buyers gets more than they bargained for so the sense behind an additional cover for the buyer makes sense.
In most cases you will buy the property as you see it with faulty electrics and dampness included – What you see, what you survey and what you inventory says is what you are parting with your money for. What about they when it comes to additional unwanted extras such as further damage, rubbish, missing items from door furniture to plants from the garden?
An idea shared by Kerry Sharples, a lawyer at Gorvins Solicitors in Manchester, gives us a clean and clear idea that a further insurance should be in place just in case – Sellers who leave their property in a poor state should be made to pay for the costs to get in back to an acceptable state and a week before the sale completes should see a revisit of the said property just before exchange of contracts took place.
