HIPS won't help first-time buyers

The National Association of Estate Agents (NAEA) in response to to a government statement on Home Information Packs (HIPs)has said that the packs will hinder first-time buyers and sellers rather than help them.

Buyer packs will raise inflation and interest rates

A recent independent survey carried out on behalf of the National Association of Estate Agents (NAEA) clearly indicates that the introduction of Home Information Packs (HIPs) on 1 June 2007 could lead to a reduction in the number of properties coming on to the market. This can only lead to increases in house price inflation.


Q&A: Home information packs

In June 2007 it will become compulsory for anyone in England and Wales who decides to sell a house or flat to put together a home information pack.
