Housing: Sales

Volume 485: debated on Wednesday 17 December 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what assessment has been made of the level of potential duplication between property information questionnaires and questions asked later in the conveyancing process. (243757)

The property information questionnaire will provide buyers, right at the start of the buying process, with the basic, useful information about a property that will help to inform their decision to view a property or make an offer. It will also act as a ‘trigger' for seeking more information further down the line.

It is not intended to replace the checks and assurances undertaken by property professionals as the transaction is finalised.
