Lack of qualified DEAs threatens HIP launch at 11th hour

Submitted by: MikeC (Admin) on 22-May-07 12:44:26 PM

In the face of mounting industry pressure, and finding itself in the stage-lights of a Judicial Review, Ruth Kelly of the DCLG is expected to appear in the House of Commons later this afternoon to declare that the introduction of HIPs, will afterall, be delayed.

Apparently, this is an unprecedented turn-around; the likes of which has not been witnessed in British politics for the last 134 years!

This is crrently being touted by the media as an eleventh hour climbdown to avoid further embarrassment before a Judicial Review which was initiated last week by RICS, who are worried that there will not be enough fully qualified and accreditated DEAs to award energy performance certificates to home-sellers, come June 1st.

More, as the news flows-in.

What a ride!
