    maybue it was worth buying www.home-information-pack.info after all :mrgreen:

    its cheaper to take the £200 fine and not bother to have a HIP ive heard?

    "It is estimated that HIPs will cost between £400 to £650 to produce."

    "Sellers who market homes without a pack face a fixed-penalty fine of £200 from trading standards officers." :confused:

    Not if you've sold your house. It is no longer your house to gain access for hims pack.

    I also read there are no additional funds being made available to enforce, so many could slip under the net altogether.

    The estate agent will also be held liable for selling a house without a HIP, and their fine is a lot more iirc - it's enough to make sure that no agent will touch a property without one...

    I have HIP domains if people want them?! ;)

    The £200 fine was for agents.

    No penalties for property owners unless they are marketing their own property.

    The whole thing should be cancelled (not just postponed), much like the ludicrous new tenancy deposit laws the Government have forced on us, they have used a sledge hammer to crack a nut in this instance.
