Will the Conservatives really put the knife into Hips

The Conservative shadow Housing Minister has reiterated recently in a letter to the Law Society Gazette of its determination to rid our land of the contentious HIPs( Home Information Packs).

Yet it is unlikely that a general election will be called before May 2010. If a week is a long time in politics then fifteen months may be an age.

It may be by then that HIPs have been dragged kicking and screaming into the arena of better value and product. Inovations such as "exchange ready HIPs" are already surfacing, and the piece of mind given by a 100% cash back guarantee will help grow the popularity and comfort of HIPs

The ugly duckling may yet evolve into the beautiful swan.
