Home information packs or HIP for the Nottingham, Nottinghamshire area.

The burning question is - whether you live and work in the Nottinghamshire area or John O'Groats - will HIPs be with us for the foreseeable future' I quote from the Daily Mail 02/09/2007 reporting the Conservative Party Conference of the previous day.

'Useless home information packs to be abolished,' stated the Tory shadow housing minister Grant Shapps. He accused ministers of introducing 'clumsy and ineffective' '600 HIPs despite grave warnings that they could spark a house buying slump. He said, 'Experts ridicule them. The industry doesn't want them. The market doesn't need them. The next Conservative Government will scrap them.' We'll see.

A quote from the Government  website was follows, "From 10 September, all homes in England and Wales with 3 or more bedrooms will need a Home Information Pack (HIP), which includes a home energy rating. The Pack includes an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC), 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." is as follows, "From 10 September, all homes in England and Wales with 3 or more bedrooms will need a Home Information Pack (HIP), which includes a home energy rating. The Pack includes an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC), containing advice on how to cut carbon emissions and fuel bills.

Further information about home information packs in the Nottingham area can be gleaned from Habitus and HomeInspectorsUK  - the DEA home energy inspectors website, on this site you can find information and free advice to prepare a home pack or Hip. Home packs were free to all home sellers during the information pack trials during 2006 in selected areas in England and Wales and which includes the Nottinghamshire area.
