Home Information Packs

Volume 485: debated on Thursday 18 December 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government if she will make the fitting of a working carbon monoxide alarm a condition of a home information pack where a gas supply is present. (244106)

No. The home information pack (HIP) provides prospective buyers with important information about a property early in the home buying and selling process. There is no power in the HIPs legislation to require sellers to make any changes or adaptations to their homes in order to be able to put them on the market.
