Seek Help from HIP Pack Provider Specialist
If you are a landlord and are planning to rent out your property, you must have Home Information Pack. Before you decide to sell, rent out or sell a house, you must have HIP. This involves a set of documents that provides the buyer with key information on the property. It must be provided by the seller or the seller's agent. It is also considered an important marketing tool to promote your house and is definitely a legal requirement too.
Home Sellers Pack allows the buyers to know important information on the property at the start of the process. This will help get an idea of what the house comprises of and how much it’s worth in the UK property market. In a way, the landlord or the seller may provide all the information related to his house and avert any confusion which may other wise arise due to lack of information. These things can be set right in the beginning itself and avoid any delays and extra expense to both buyer and a seller.
Basically, HIP contains official information that is mandatory while others are optional. A landlord can choose to provide or opt out of it based on his convenience. An HIP will also have Energy Performance Certificate as part of its content. The compulsory items in the HIP are mentioned as below:
In case of Freehold properties
- Index of Home Information Pack
- Energy Performance Certificate (EPC)
- Evidence of title
- Your sales statement
- sustainability information (required only for newly built homes)
- standard searches (local authority and drainage and water)
In case of Leasehold properties:
- all the compulsory documents as seen above
- and a copy of your lease
