Do your own Home Information Packs
The Government legislation on Home Information Packs allows you to compile your own Home Information Packs.
If you're marketing a property yourself, you must have a Home Information Pack and make copies of it available to potential buyers. However, even if you're using an estate agent, you can still put one together yourself.
This means you own the Home Information Packs, regardless of which solicitors and estate agents are involved. And think of the money you save by doing your own Home Information Pack.
Home Information Pack Legislation
From 14 December 2007 , Home Information
Packs are compulsory for all residential properties in England an Wales.
Government legislation places an explicit duty on home-owners or their agent marketing a residential property to prepare Home Information Packs.
What's in the Home Information Packs?

For sellers, providing the Home Information Packs upfront should reduce the likelihood of any nasty surprises in the selling process that could delay the sale, as buyers will be able to make more informed decisions about purchasing their home.
For buyers, the Home Information Packs provides essential information about properties they are considering buying, free of charge.
