The Localism Bill was laid before Parliament on 13 December 2010 and includes a provision to formally abolish home information packs. Subject to parliamentary approval, the provision will come into force when Royal Assent is achieved.

The Secretary of State suspended the home information pack duties by an Order made under s162 of the Housing Act 2004 which came into effect on 21 May 2010.
