Call to continue Hips concession

Campaigners want sellers to keep the right to put their home on the market before their home information pack (Hip) is finalised.

At present owners can market their properties as soon as they have commissioned a Hip, but from June it will have to be completed first.

The government said the concession had only ever been a temporary measure.

Hips, now compulsory for all homes being sold in England and Wales, are intended to speed up the sale of homes, and give all buyers an energy rating for the property.
