How much information does a conveyancing solicitor need from a tenant?

My landlord has just sold the flat I still live in, to a property developer. She said that I need to supply her with the names of the company who supply my water, gas and electricity. She said these are for her conveyancing solicitor and the new buyer will also need it. Is this true and why?


This is true and the reason that your landlord requires this information is that when selling a property, the prospective buyer will need to know that the utilities and services stated are connected to the property. The buyer will also need to know who the providers are so that when they move in, they can decide whether they wish to stay with the current provider or change to a new one.

I found it really helpful to have a comparison of the costs and level of service for each firm clearly set out. It made finding a solicitor extremely easy, and I would not have been able to have got such good value for money without it
