Yvette Cooper: The home condition report is an objective report on the physical condition of a property, including an energy performance certificate complying with the European Union (EU) Directive on the Energy Performance of Buildings. It is one of the documents required to be provided in a home information pack, which also contains local search information, including whether or not the property is on the local authority's contaminated land register. The pack will also contain legal information about the property, such as evidence of title and leasehold information, and forms relating to contents and terms of sale.
A home condition report must comply with requirements to be set out in regulations. It is intended that a home condition report will contain the home inspector's record of the following information about a property, as set out in the draft Home Information Pack Regulations, published on the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister's website:
The draft regulations also provide that the home condition report must not include anything which would identify or express an opinion on an individual, or any information about security features of a property.

Dr. Stoate: To ask the Deputy Prime Minister what assessment he has made of the (a) cost and (b) feasibility of undergrounding overhead power lines in Kent Thameside as part of the on-going regeneration of the area. 
Yvette Cooper: The Office of the Deputy Prime Minister is taking forward its programme of regeneration with local partners, including private developers. To date, this issue has not emerged as a major barrier to regenerating the area. Therefore, there is no current feasibility work under way looking at undergrounding overhead power lines in North Kent.
Developers should work with local authorities and other relevant bodies at an early stage in the planning process to find sustainable and, where appropriate, innovative solutions towards creating positive and high quality environments.
Mr. Roger Williams: To ask the Deputy Prime Minister how many park homes are registered in (a) Band A, (b) Band B, (c) Band C, (d) Band D, (e) Band E, (f) Band F, (g) Band G and (h) Band H for council tax purposes. 
Information on the number of park homes in England in each council tax band is not held centrally, and could be provided only at disproportionate cost. Council tax in Wales is the responsibility of the Welsh Assembly Government.
