Fixtures and Fittings List
The vendor of a property must prepare a fixtures and fittings list which states exactly what they intend to include in the sale. This might include lighting, fitted carpets, kitchens or kitchen appliances, beds, tables, etc
Note this document does not have to be prepared until after an offer from a buyer has been accepted.
After a sale is agreed the vendor's solicitor will usually provide the vendor with a ready to fill in Fixtures and Fittings document which, when completed, is then sent over to your solicitor along with other documents related to the property.
If you made your offer in the way I recommend in the ebook How to Really Buy a Property then the Fixtures and Fittings list is an important document confirming what was agreed when your offer was accepted.
