HIPs delayed until August

he introduction of controversial Home Information Packs will be delayed until August, Communities Secretary Ruth Kelly announced today in parliament..

The packs were due to be compulsory for anyone wanting to sell their home from 1 June this year. Kelly said the packs would be phased in starting with the sales of three and four-bedroom houses. Sellers will also only have to commission a pack, rather than have completed one, before marketing their houses for sale.
