To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what discussions her Department has had with the Local Government Association concerning fee setting and access to property information in the context of home information packs; whether areas of disagreement remain; and if she will make a statement.

Officials have met on a regular basis with Local Government Association representatives to discuss the implementation of the Office of Fair Trading's report "Property Searches—A Market Survey", which made recommendations on fee setting and access to property information. Discussions with the LGA and other stakeholders on these issues will continue through the conveyancing and property searches working group, on which the LGA is represented. I have also met with LGA representatives to discuss progress in the context of home information packs. The LGA and my Department are working closely on the next steps.
