Leading industry firms support HIPs delay Tuesday 22 May 2007 PDF Print Easy Convey and OneMove™ call for delay to be used to iron out remaining issues before the new launch date of 1st August Easy Convey Ltd (www.easyconvey.com), a leading developer of electronic conveyancing products and services, and OneMove™ (www.onemove.com), the new home moving service that acts as an intermediary for everyone involved in a property transaction, have both announced that they support Communities Secretary Ruth Kelly's decision this afternoon to delay the introduction of the proposed Home Information Packs (HIPs). “This is an excellent idea in view of the lack of energy assessors” explains Dominic Cullis, MD, Easy Convey. “The ensuing delay should give the industry time to fully prepare for implementation and the Government a chance to address the outstanding issues which need to be resolved. My heart goes out to those businesses who have spent a lot of time and money preparing for HIPs.” “I think it's a wise move for Ruth Kelly to be delaying the introduction of HIPs. The whole situation needs to be completely reviewed and we need to go back to what were the original aims of the scheme -- over the years it has become diluted and lost its way. states Neil Patel, CEO, OneMove™. The industry needs a clear direction on HIPs, it was supposed to make house-moving simpler, not add even more stress and confusion” “ -ends- Both companies are available for interview.
