What are Home Information Packs?

In the event that you require any additional information or clarification from ourselves, please do not hesitate to contact a member of our team.

Home Information Packs (HIP) are to introduced in June 2007 and are designed to improve the process of buying and selling a home. These will be compulsory for all sellers in England and Wales and is expected to speed up the process between an offer being accepted and contracts being exchanged.
Documents required are:

  • A list of pack contents, or index;
  • Evidence of title;
  • Sale statement outlining terms of sale;
  • Energy performance certificate;
  • Standard searches, e.g Local authority;
  • Leasehold information (if applicable);
  • Commonhold information (if applicable);
  • New Homes Warranty (if applicable);
  • Reports on a home that is incomplete (if applicable);
  • A Home Condition Report.
  • Authorised documents include:
  • Warranties and Guarentees;
  • Other searches.

The cost of producing a Home Information Pack (up to £1,000), is being passed on to the seller, therefore the expense will simply be incorporated into the price of the property.
