    Abstract

    Since 1997, the Government has attempted to address the home-buying process. The Housing Act 2004 aims to provide the necessary tools to achieve better and faster methods by introducing, on the 1st June 2007, the Home Information Pack, developed through studies of foreign selling processes, viability studies and the Bristol Pilot Scheme. This project will introduce the Housing Act 2004 by providing the reality of the contents currently proposed by the Home Information Pack Regulations 2006, SI2006/1503. The introduction of the Home Information Pack is fast approaching, but the industry is strongly opposing the commencement order, criticising the lack of preparation and poor infrastructure. The literature review analyses the information available from the Department of Communities and Local Government and provides statements from the industry's professional bodies. Analysing the perception of the stakeholders in the City of Portsmouth offers an insight into the lack of information provided to estate agents and members of the public. The changes implemented by the Government in 2006 have confused more than clarified the situation, and this study will provide the supporting evidence to show that the City of Portsmouth is not ready for the implementation of this new legislation.
