James Daley, Editor, Which? Money, said: "It’s now compulsory to get a Home Information Pack before you put your house or flat on the market – in fact, you could be fined up to £200 a day if you don’t get one.
"But don’t be fooled into thinking that you have to buy it from your estate agent. Our research shows that the most expensive high street agents charge over twice as much as the cheapest online Hip providers – so you could save hundreds of pounds by shopping around for the best deal."
The findings are part of Which? Money’s new report on how to cut the cost of selling your home. The report also reveals that homeowners can save more than £3000 by using an online estate agent rather than a high street equivalent.
