  • Clever old Tories. Sign up a rather dim TV personality cum estate agent to sort out the housing market.

  • Well thats 1 vote less they are getting at the next general election. If thats the type of expertise they are using in their policies then they deserve to be out voted.

  • Yes, the tories had the option of getting an intelligent person involved but thought getting a dimwitted tv personality would get them more votes – thus pushing them ahead in the polls and simultaneously proving that they are not fit to look after the long term interests of the british population.

  • Shame HIPs are such rubbish and no buyer in their right mind will take the slightest notice – i give them 3 years.

    Cough, splutter, guffaw, “WHAT THE?!”

    Did they really call her an expert?

    Her one enduring statement, that London property will never go down in price, was incorrect!

    But without something like HIPs which details everything a buyer needs to know about a property, they cannot make an offer. If the offer is to be legally binding then both parties must be informed of the condition of the house.

  • Kirsty naked. Where do I sign?!? I’m salivating at the thought.

    Wouldn’t mind a threesome with Allsop and Beeny.

  • And I wouldn’t mind a foursome!

    (sorry, it’s the only sane thing to say in response to that).

    I find it funny that now her remits has been beached along with her career, she’s employed as some silly advisor. And I don’t believe a word the tories say after reading this:

    “First time buyers would have to pay for the information they now get for free, and would be bound in to an offer even when they haven’t been given the facts about problems with the property.”

    That’s plain rot – HIPS are to the benefit of all buyers and any seller to the FTB market will have to discount that cost out anyway because FTBs don’t have the cash. They are crying crocodile tears and pretending to root for us. Superficially friendly but profoundly hostile.

  • Oops that’s Labour saying that not the tories.

    HIPS is one of the few things that Labour have got right – I just wish they didn’t cave into the vast numbers of vested interests in the housing market to delay their introduction.

  • Paul,

    Hips have their benefit, but the big problem for Solicitors is that the searches and reports are out of date so quickly.

    In fact the process of conveyancing wqs only really held up by the mortgage offer being delayed (or buyers being over optomistic about it before going to see estate agents/solicitors), or the requirements of lenders (requisitions before they will forward for completion) anyway.

    Under the old system one could always extend the life of the searches for a small amount of money in indemnity insurance anyway…

  • She will do anything to avoid eating her hat!

    By the way what have I missed, been on holiday for a month around New Zealand and come back to things still bubbling away and a crazy decision from the BOE. Inflation still under 2% yet petrol prices have risen by 6 pence a litre in the month I have been away! Banks charging £10k to arrange a mortgage, I am serioulsy worried about where the economy is headed and have to fend off constant badgering by older relatives (who have done really well out of the property market) to buy buy buy!
