The TA6 Property Information Form is a form designed to aid the seller in giving important information on the property being sold, to the buyer.

The TA6 form will ask a variety of detailed questions of the seller and these must be answered as truthfully as possible. It will cover everything from rights of way, easements, who owns the boundary fences, information on planning & building control, information on the heating systems, sewage, the property’s history, etc.

What does A TA6 Information Form Look Like | Has It Changed?

The form itself has been in use for some time but it’s recently been given a facelift in response to various changes in regulations that make the sharing of the pertinent information on topics like the presence of Japanese knotweed or the condition and specification of a septic tank.

The new TA6 Form has been changed to cover four main topics;

  • Japanese knotweed
  • flood risk
  • radon
  • septic tanks

The Law Society has explained the main changes to the TA6 with regard to Japanese knotweed as follows:

  1. highlighting that information ought to be provided to a buyer if the seller is aware that there is a treatment plan in place
  2. replacing “eradication” with “managing its regrowth”
  3. adding an “unknown” response on the basis that knotweed can be difficult for a homeowner to detect

All sellers will be required to fill in a TA6 form during the conveyance process. If you’d like to see what is required you can download a specimen copy here.
