Solicitors launch HIP refund plan

A firm of solicitors is offering to refund clients the cost of their Home Information Pack when their sales complete.

Liverpool-based firm Paul Rooney Partnership Solicitors has launched its HIP Price Refund Plan this week.

Under the scheme, clients instruct Paul Rooney Partnership with the sale and pay the firm a fee of £175 to create the HIP.

When the sale has completed the £175 is refunded from the legal fees.

David Mason, marketing and business development manager at Paul Rooney Partnership, says: “Although house prices have fallen, the cost of moving house continues to rise.

“We feel we have taken the next step by offering what we believe is an industry first product.

“Whether a client is selling a one bedroom flat or a six bedroom house the HIP plan remains the same.”
