HIPs Shambles

Its now official - the introduction of Home Information Packs will be
. Its hard to believe that the government have lost their bottle at the eleventh hour in such a pathetic way.

RICS have done the damage with a judicial review application thrown in with sublime timing 2 weeks before the launch date of 1st June.

Our senior conveyancing team have been mooting this prospect for weeks now but somehow you just felt the government would press on regardless. I feel for the law firms and other related businesses who have spent good money on advertising and training. The latter at least wont be a complete waste.

One thing you have to say though is that the government regardless of their majority in the house, do not get to call all the shots in this country. We should be thankful for that at least.
