The Pack includes an Energy Performance Certificate, containing advice on how to cut carbon emissions and fuel bills. Also included are documents such as a sale statement, searches and evidence of title. This is the first stage of Home Information Packs (HIPs).
From today, 10 September all homes in England and Wales with 3 or more bedrooms marketed for sale will require a HIP.
