To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department pursuant to the answer to the hon. Member for Brentwood and Ongar of 13 January 2009, Official Report, column 719W, on official residences, for what reason a home condition report was not purchased. (256498)

The selling agents did not advise procurement of a home condition report as they consider that the most likely potential purchaser will wish to carry out substantial works to the property and a home condition report would not be likely to materially assist such a purchaser.
