My partner has almost completed the Home Information Pack course and now it seems it’s all been a waste of time and money.
The government cannot expect people to pay for training to work with the packs, then suspend the whole idea and not offer any sort of compensation. Next time a government wants to introduce a new initiative nobody will train to implement it because of what has happened with HIPs.
The only winners from this debacle have been trainers and the government. Home inspectors and sellers have been ripped off.
