The HIP Code provides protection for homebuyers,
estate agents, conveyancers and mortgage lenders
who rely on the information included in a Home Information Pack (HIP) provided
on residential property within England and Wales. It sets out minimum standards which HIP providers have to meet.
The HIP Code is owned and maintained by the
Association of Home Information Pack Providers (AHIPP).
HIP firms can subscribe to the HIP Code as a HIP provider in their own right and/or as a HIP Platform Provider
(a PCCB registered HIP Platform Provider indirectly extends HIP Code 'subscription' to users of its platform).
All HIPs which comply with this Code will include the HIP Code logo and you can check whether a HIP provider
subscribes to the Code by searching the Register of Firms.
