    a) it must be less than 3 months old
    Home information Pack legislation - check page 12, no.15.
    b) yes, you also need water search info CON29DW, as well as local searches.

    Hope this helps

      Some confusion here!

      LLC1 is a statutory search of local authority registers. It costs a fixed £5.

      Con29 has various versions as follows:
      1. Con29R- standard Local Authority enquiries. Price varies a lot, depending on local authority.
      2. Con29O- extra (optional, non-standard) Local Authority enquiries. Again, price varies.
      3. Con29M- mining search (inc. Cheshire Brine Subsidence, where applicable). Fixed price- contact Coal Authority.
      4. Con29DW- Drainage/Water Enquiries. Price varies a bit, depending on water/drainage company.

      So the 'local search' usually means LLC1 + Con29R (+Con29O, in some cases).

          If the conservatives win the election they've already said they'll ban HIPs, it's just how long it will take and whether they will replace them with anything else. Whatever happens with HIPs EPCs will still be required due to European legislation.

              And in the interests of balance, I hope we don't.

                          Could someone please assist me.

                          I am buying a property and the seller is saying the property has been on the market continuously since 2007 and therefore he does not have to give me a HIP. Is this correct. If so, can I ask him to prove it or must I simply take his word for it.

                          Thank you.

                            HIPs are suspended as of today - so, no HIP required.

                              I don't know whether to be happy or sad about the recent EPC I've received. I bet mine's the only flat in England with storage heaters scoring a B!

                              In my experience, half the tenants dont know what an EPC is, the other half couldn't give a monkeys.

                              I own a Victorian terrace BTL which had a knackered slate roof. I accepted an estimate from a contractor recommended by the managing agent for a re-roof. The estimate drew attention to a number of changes eg a dry, maintenance free joint on the ridge tiles, use of substitute lead flashing. The work...

                              Does anyone roof in Welsh slate these days except mainly on listed buildings? I have had experience of Chinese slate in the 1980's ( irregular thickness) and synthetic slate which is pretty good IMO. Marley moderns are heavy and do check out your joists but the closed ridge system that can be fitted...

                              Many years since I reroofed a slate roof - but I used artificial slate then, Welsh slate was ridiculously expensive and therefore only likely to used for listed buildings. The old slates certainly had value. If the tiles are too heavy and the roof needs to be stripped fibre cement slates are light.and...

                              I wanted to write something more about how to remedy the situation:

                              Best approach to remedying the situation is likely to be get the structural report done asap, if the tiles are too heavy, negotiate with the contractor to strip the roof and install the correct slates. I expect you will...

                              Bluebonnie's warning is important and useful. If the roof isn't strong enough for the new tiles, you probably have a claim against the roofing contractor under the Supply of Goods and Services Act 1982. As this requires the goods to be fit for their purpose AND the service to be done with reasonable...

                              Oh, that's an interesting explanation Blinko. You mean that the flat is big enough for three people, so the energy cost mentioned on the EPC is per person? That's a bit mad though, isn't it? ...

                              I don't forget these things are theoretical so a one bedroom flat might theoretically in a calculation terms be two people where is reality could be one for two bedroom it could be two adults and two small children

                              Thanks Sam. That is interesting. Even two neighbours on my landing with gas heating only manage a C.

                              I think I'll just have to tell prospective tenants that the EPC is a load of coblers, and to take the three year cost to be one year.
