The Home Information Pack draft regulations - Office of the Deputy Prime Minister (ODPM)

The Home Information Pack draft regulations - Office of the Deputy Prime Minister (ODPM) - now published

From 2007 the law will require anyone selling their home to put together a Home Information Pack for potential home buyers. The Pack will bring together all of the key information needed at the start of the home buying and selling process.



These draft regulations are concerned with:
the meaning of Home Information Packs (HIP)
the contents of the Packs
forms for providing HIP information
assembly and authenticity of HIPs
exceptions to the duty to have a HIP
enforcement of HIP duties

The regulations are being published in draft to provide an opportunity for comments on the drafting, accuracy and practical application of the provisions set out in the regulations. In the case of the draft forms, we are seeking comments on the content. The design of the forms, including their translation into Welsh, will be undertaken following the consultation. This is part of a process aimed at ensuring that the regulations work effectively when home information packs are introduced. The consultation is not seeking comments on wider issues surrounding the contents and applications of HIPs. These were the subject of earlier consultations - see the background note below."

If you would like to see the regulations that will soon cover house buying and house selling, and make your own comments, this is the place to find them.
