Home Information Pack changes from 20th May 2010

As of May 20th 2010, the Coalition Government announced the suspension of the Home Information Pack.

Communities secretary, Eric Pickles, laid an order before parliament suspending Hips, pending primary legislation for a permanent abolition.
"The expensive and unnecessary home information pack has increased the cost and hassle of selling homes and is stifling a fragile housing market," he said. "That is why I am taking emergency action to suspend the Hip, bringing down the cost of selling a home and removing unnecessary regulation from the home buying process.
"This action will encourage sellers back into the market, and help the market as a whole and the economy recover."
Sellers will still be required to get an energy performance certificate (EPC), showing how energy efficient a property, within 28 days of putting their home on the market, as this is a requirement under EU law.

Mike Ockenden, director general of the Association of Home Information Pack Providers, said: “More than 3,000 jobs will go and 10,000 will be affected as a result of the suspension of HIPs.”

The main focus for EPC Solutions (Kent) has always been to produce quality EPCs and as a result has easily adapted to the changes following the dramatic announcement .
