Hips facing the axe.
The final death knell is set to be sounded later for the controversial home information packs.
Under the current law, homeowners are required to produce a pack of information before they can begin marketing their home to potential buyers.
But campaigners criticised the policy, saying it failed to help home buyers and discouraged people from putting their property on the market.
The Conservatives and Liberal Democrats pledged in their coalition agreement to get rid of the packs, but retain energy performance certificates, which show how energy efficient a property is.
A clause in the 2004 Housing Act allows Communities Secretary Eric Pickles to suspend home information pack duties.
An announcement confirming the move is expected to be made by the new Government later.
