"Agents making a lot of money out of HIP’s"

Submitted by: MikeC (Admin) on 28-May-08 04:30:57 PM

A staunch SPLINTA campaigning estate agent on the Isle of Wight is claiming that 'a hell of a lot of Agents [are] making a lot of money out of HIP’s'.

It is advising mainland home sellers to avoid estate agents which use the services of one particular HIP provider after he received an email containing several testimonials, including:

"We moved our Hip supplier and started using Hipsco six months ago, we now receive an average of £1800 per week into our bank account, which makes a real difference to our business, I can highly recommend Hispco to anyone"

Did the SPLINTA campaigner forget to mention, or conveniently forget, that the head of SPLINTA, Nick Salmon has joined a company that is heavily involved in supplying HIPs to Home Sellers. On the mainland!

Nick is of course Commercial Director for Harrison Murray, a medium size chain of estate agency offices and is still very active in pushing the anti-HIPs message. I wonder how much Harrison Murray mark up their HIP prices- or do they do it all at 'cost price'? See Nick here:

I love a company which keeps up to date with everything, it really inspires confidence. Check out the HIPSCO home page main banner part of which reads "Home Information Packs are now required on all properties with three bedrooms or more" Marvellous!
