Housing: Home Information Packs

Volume 704: debated on Wednesday 15 October 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

How many properties for sale in August and September 2007 are still on the market; and, of those, how many have had to have a renewed home information pack. [HL5432]

The Government do not produce statistics on when properties are put on the market for sale or how long they stay on the market. There is no requirement under the home information pack (HIP) regulations for a seller to renew a HIP as long as the property they are selling remains on the market.
