About this document
Note: All Net Lawman company documents provide compliance with the Companies Act 2013.
This document has been drawn for a simple sale and purchase of a limited company. It has been drawn primarily to protect the buyer, but a seller could take advantage by submitting an edited version to his buyer.
There are no extras here: no real property, no conditional payment nor withholding of part payment. The company has no subsidiaries.
You can use this document to buy a private company of any value in any business.
If your deal is more complicated you can use the table below to choose a different template. This template is suitable for all types of business. You can use it to buy anything from a car dealership to a civil engineering company.

In addition we also provide an example disclosure letter in this pack. We have provided a format as an indication of how a disclosure letter works and a style you could use. The detailed wording is up to you but can be added easily.
A word about warranties:
We have also included warranties. Warranties protect the interest of the buyer, who does not have the information available to the seller. It is fair and reasonable for a buyer to demand warranties and for a seller to give them. However, it is quite easy for a buyer to use warranties to "improve" his original deal. So, if you are a seller, do not give a warranty if you do not know whether it is true, but do be prepared to "go and find out" information that could be within your knowledge.
