My partner is currently purchasing a property in England. In the report returned by the solicitor upon completing the searches, it is indicated that the shed and greenhouse are not included in the sale (this is mentioned in an email exchange and the list of included and excluded inventory).
However, in the sales material (both a brochure and a page on the estate agent's website) they are explicitly mentioned: "...gravelled area and large garden shed...", "...pond, greenhouse and raised borders...".
Additionally during visits to the property there was no indication given that they were not included, despite speaking to both the estate agent and the vendor themselves.
As a result, my partner feels misled about their exclusion. Is the sales information considered binding and therefore will they need to include these items? Or is this instead a matter of just adjusting the offer to account for the change?
