London : 28th September 2007 -– Property professionals who are members of Hipag, the Home Information Pack co-operative, have pronounced Hipag a success, despite a few minor teething problems. Hipag CEO, Rob Hailstone, says ‘It was never going to be easy, but the overwhelming response from our Members tells us that the introduction of HIPs has gone far more smoothly than anyone expected and is providing dividends even it its present, embryonic form.’

Says Hailstone, ‘Even when 3-bed properties were included, bringing an increase in the volume of HIPs, including a small number of leasehold properties, our Members still tell us they found our HIP process easy to use and less daunting than expected. To date we have completed hundreds of HIPs with enquiries and orders rising daily.’

Typical of the comments received from Hipag Members in the past week are the following from local Estate Agents and High Street solicitors in England and Wales.

“We have found the ordering of Hips through Hipag to be quick, easy, trouble free and competitively priced. Hipag has certainly allayed our initial fears of the unknown!”

Duncan Rawlinson, Solicitor, Dickson Haslam, Preston

"The ordering is simple … the support staff were always very helpful."

Diane Moisley-Mason, Kirbys Solicitors, Harrogate.

"If I can use Hipag Online to order my Hips, anyone can!"

Stephen Maggs, Estate Agent, Bristol.

"The overall service seems very quick, efficient and reasonably priced."

Gary Sheen, Estate Agent, Clacton on Sea.

“I would like to say thank you to all at Hipag. Hips were considered a daunting process. From my personal point of view, I can honestly say that I have experienced no problems that could not and were not overcome by email/telephone. Keep up the good work!

Sharon Hardy, Conveyancer, Porter Dodson, Sherborne
