Buying And Selling UK Property: Swaying The HIPs

Author : Brazg Gavin

Last week multiple reports talked of how the suspension order had already been signed, as well as, as a foreruneer for permanent abolition, will be signed last Monday. But now with that behind us and not a peep from anyone, it seems individuals who told us these reports were untrue were indeed correct. What is next then, will the HIP be still chopped?

Given that all parties within the coalition have expressed that they would abolish HIPs it is easy to consider that it is a formality. That is, if we don't fully understand how often election assurances had been broken.

The Conservatives and Liberal Democrats definitely plotted to utilise the clause that would allow them to defer the Home Information Pack, nonetheless it appears they have learned that this will not be made possible.

The legislation contained a clause that allows emergency suspension of the Home Infomation Packs it will be the cause of a drastic slowdown of the market. But the recent Office of Fair Trading report said that HIPs have been developing a favourable impact, therefore this very likely was the reason why there will be use for the suspension clause, especially so long following HIPs' introduction. In February, the OFT report stated:

"It could be argued that HIPs in their current form have a positive impact, and ,We do not, therefore, recommend any intervention on this issue at the present time."

The instanst deferment of HIPs will be a sweeping move given how many people involved in the new business concerning their provision. It is likely the government was encouraged that an assessment period permitting them to point their operations to some other fields in an organised fashion was the ideal approach.

Many individuals have already postponed their plans to sell, as well as, as outlined by HIP vendors some are also prompting estate agents to to defy the law and sell their homes without a HIP. It looks probably that these people will now be waiting around at least 100 days, prior to the government's assessment period is over, and they decide how to cope on the matter.

Nevertheless, the simple truth is that now the move has lost its momentum anything can happen, and anyone putting off buying or selling an UK property to avoid the bureaucracy of swinging from the HIP can end up lamenting what happens to be simply a futile waste of their time.
