Government action on Hips boosts house market

Since the Government announced the abolition of the controversial Home Information packs, the number of homes for sale has increased.
That’s according to the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors’ latest UK Housing Market survey, which found that 21% of surveyors saw an increase in new instructions, compared to 11% the month before.

The report found house prices also went up in May, with 22% more surveyors reporting a rise rather than a fall, compared to 19% in April.
