    Can anybody help with what to do when a HIPS is not supplied? In the process of buying a bungalow and solicitor has just advised there is no HIPS as property was originally put on market before the new regulations came in to force. On the Estate Agent details for the property it showed the Energy Efficiency Rating and Enviromental Impact - I thought that this was part of the HIPS. Have I got my facts messed up?!

    Yes it is part of the HIP - but not all of it. If the house was genuinely on the market prior to HIP impln date, there's not a lot to do if the sellers don't have one, as they're not required to.

      Even if you don't need a HIP you effectively do need an EPC for a property on the market.

      As a conveyancing solicitor I want to be helpful (England/Wales only) but can't accept liability for this.
