Pressure on the Government to scrap the controversial Home Information Packs reached a peak last night.
The National Association of Estate Agents said they should go, only weeks after Ministers announced a major U-turn over the packs, saying the home condition report would no longer be mandatory.
Peter Bolton King, chief executive of the NAEA, wants the Government to work with estate agents and find other ways of improving the home buying and selling process.
Mr Bolton King said: "Whatever anyone might think about the whole concept of HIPs, it is nonsense to make it only part voluntary.
"The majority of the remaining compulsory documents are at best, often unnecessary before a sale is agreed and, at worst, unintelligible without legal interpretation.
"The Association remains totally committed to work with Government to improve the buying and selling process for the benefit of consumers. I would again ask the Government to consider how this can be achieved.
