In a bit of a quandary. Signed up to sell my house via Estate Agent. No Sale
no fee and they paid for the HIP, cost of which would be refundable to agent if I withdrew from Sale
. Property on the market for 18months, 3 viewings, one offer which was withdrawn due to inability of buyer to gain planning permission for the scheme he wanted. Property in local newspaper 8 times, giving aggregate of once every 9 weeks. Any activity on my property was always at my instigation, changing wording of advert, advising of spelling mistakes, lack of highlighting of various aspects, including the fact that they said they didn't realise there was "No Chain" involved. Anyway, HIP's got withdrawn from the statute book and then I withdrew the property from the market with the agent due to lack of progress. I now have a bill from them for reimbursement of the cost of the HIP. Does anyone know where the law stands on this, given the fact that they are no longer required and the length of time I patiently persevered with them?????
