home information pack

Quick Reference


A pack of relevant documents compiled by the vendor of land as required by the Home Information Pack Regulations 2006, made under the Housing Act 2004. The pack must contain a sale statement, summarizing the terms of the sale; evidence of title; standard searches such as local authority searches and a drainage and water search; and an energy performance certificate, produced by a trained energy assessor. The pack does not need to contain a home condition report (survey), which makes the packs less useful than had originally been intended. The requirement for a vendor to have such a pack was phased in from 1 August 2007.

Subjects: Law.
