Guides for buyers and sellers
We publish two important guides for buyers and sellers of residential property — the agency agreement guide and the sale and purchase agreement guide. (These were previously known as approved guides.)
You must give a copy of the appropriate guide to buyers and sellers before they sign an agency agreement or sale and purchase agreement.
Agency agreement guide
You must give a copy of the agency agreement guide to vendors before they sign an agency agreement for the sale of residential property, and you must obtain written confirmation that they have received it.
