HIP Suspension. Has it made a difference to agents yet?

Have agents seen a significant increase in instructions (not just valuations) since HIPs were suspended on 20th May?

  • We have seen an increase, with last week our busiest week for new instructions this year, however it is too early to tell if this is HIP related or just a coincidence.

  • It hasn't really made a great difference with regards to selling properties as a whole, but it certainly has brought some more properties to the market which may not of prior.

  • Surely an increase in instructions may not be bringing the greatest quality or commitment. Whilst the packs and indeed policy were extremely flawed in the auction environment theY did have a benefit. We found many of the commercial HIP companies were in fact far more efficient in getting legals together than many solicitors, thus giving buyers greater time to prepare to bid.
