All properties marketed
from 14th December 2007 require a Home Information Pack (HIP).
A basic HIP consists of a HIP index
listing the contents of the HIP, a sale statement detailing
the property and the legal interest being sold, a Local Authority
search, an Energy Performance Certificate, a Water and Drainage
Search, and Official Copies of the Title Registers (In addition,
any ancillary title documentation if applicable) and a copy
of the lease if applicable.
• Once we have received
instructions to prepare a HIP, usually by telephone, we will
require that payment is made for the cost of the HIP i.e.
for the Energy Performance Certificate, Local Authority search,
Water and Drainage search and title documents to your property.
• You can make payment for the HIP over the telephone
by card, by bank transfer, cheque, or cash.
• Once we are in credit of cleared HIP funds we immediately:-
A) Order the searches for your HIP
B) Contact your Estate Agent electronically to confirm that
a HIP is being prepared and confirm that they can now proceed
to market your property.
• If you choose to use us to buy and/or sell your property
as well as ask us to prepare your HIP we will waive the costs
of producing the HIP. This means that you would only pay for
the cost of the Energy Performance Certificate and searches.
• We offer a range of HIPS packages from the basic partial
HIP (as detailed above) to a full HIP, which includes extra
searches such as an Environmental search and/or Chancel Check
