Information packs extended to 3-bed homes

Anyone selling a three-bedroom home after September 10 will have to provide the buyer with a home information pack, after the government said yesterday it was expanding the controversial scheme.

The Department for Communities and Local Government said it had enough energy assessors on its books to expand the scheme to three-bedroom homes. Since the start of August, sellers of properties with four or more bedrooms have had to commission a £400 pack which includes an energy performance certificate, property searches and evidence of title.
