Audit office slams government over Hips

The government has come under fire from the National Audit Office (NAO) for the way it implemented the controversial home information packs (Hips) earlier this month.

The parliamentary spending watchdog has been investigating the packs following a request by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (Rics).

The packs, which are now compulsory for all homes with four or more bedrooms, are put together when a property goes on the market, and include standard search documents, an energy performance certificate and other information.
