First podcast analysing implications of HIPs delay announcement

PodcastA big big thanks to both Jim Gillespie and Neil Kurz for suffering myself today on this inaugural podcast.

I never thought I'd be doing podcasts here, I have to say. But the recent news-flow and shockwaves have been so far-reaching (following the announcement to delay the launch of HIPs until August 1st), that writing it down was just too slow and cumbersome.

Podcast #1

Or download: Shooting from the HIP (Approx length 1hr).

We analyse what each new proposal might mean and discuss how realistic an August 1st launch actually is.

  • We talk dirty about compensation claims, RICs... the whole bunch.
  • We tip our hat to Mike Norris (polite golf clap) ;)
  • Possible avenues of action (well, definite avenues of action actually).
  • Plus much more.

Podcast Notes

Jim mentioned lodging a complaint to the Parliamentary Ombudsman. Thanks to chriserenity (who found the correct link), you can do this via their complaint form; fill it in, get your MP to sign it and fire it off.

Two other sites representative of Home Inspectors and DEA's mentioned: (no longer exists) and Institute of Home Inspection (IHI)

PS... I know, the jingle is pathetic.
