Final phase of HIPs roll out announced
The DCLG has also announced two other important changes to the HIPs legislation:
- The temporary "first day marketing" provisions will be extended from 1 January 2008 to 1 June 2008. These provisions are explained in Practice note, Home Information Packs: duties of sellers and estate agents.
- For leasehold properties, only the lease itself will be required in the HIP. The requirement to include other leasehold documents will be re-introduced later. For information on the other leasehold documents that are currently required in a HIP, see Practice note, Contents of Home Information Packs.
