This Old House
You will recall that earlier this month I wrote about Nanny's much derided Home Seller Information Packs (HIPS), which were due to be introduced next year.
Nanny had in mind that all sellers of homes would pay £800 to have one of these prepared.
These would of course have totally "f**ked up" the housing market, and doubtless brought our precarious economy crashing down to earth with a big bump.
Now it seems that following a major outcry, Nanny has been forced into a humiliating public retreat. HIPS are no longer going to be compulsory.
One small victory in the ongoing war against Nanny.
