Details have just been released by the new coalition government about the full policy sheet. One of those details that have been announced recently is the scrapping of HIP’s.

When HIP’s were first introduced, everyone was sceptical of the advantages. It was seen as just another money making scheme with no real benefits. So, as a way to cut bureaucracy and costs, HIP’s are to go. This I’m sure will be good news to many, as moving house already accumulates a lot of paper work, HIP’s just added unecessarily to the pile.

UPDATE: HIP’s are to be scrapped officially.
