arrow WHAT IS A HOME INFORMATION PACK (HIP)?

A HIP contains a number of key legal documents which is important information for both the Buyer and Seller.  The main requirements for documents are as follows:-

  1. An index
  2. An Energy Performance Certificate
  3. A Sale Statement
  4. Evidence of Title
  5. Standard Searches
  6. Common hold Information (if applicable)
  7. Leasehold Information (if applicable)

If you are selling a property with 4 bedrooms or more from the 1st August 2007, you are obliged by Law to provide a risk pack to any potential purchasers.  By providing this information at the initial stage of any interest shown by a Purchaser, the pack should benefit you, the Seller, by reducing the likelihood of any surprises arising later in the process and should therefore not delay the sale which could have been a problem previously.

Usually, potential Buyers do have the essential information about the property that they are considering purchasing free of charge (the cost being paid by you the Seller).
