Become a HIP Inspector

Retrain for a new and exciting career as a Home Information Pack provider

Due to a recent change in Government legislation, every home that is put on the market for sale in England and Wales now requires a HIP - that's an estimated 1.5 million properties per year.

This has created a new and exciting multi-million pound industry within the property sector. Green Qual training will teach you how to enter this market and get your 'slice' of this business, no matter what your previous experience or background. Whether you are looking to gain employment within the property industry, or you are looking to set-up your own Home Information Pack business, this training course is ideal for you.

Soaring demand for HIPs due to recession

Because the law specifies that home sellers must order a HIP before their house is put up for sale, HIPs have been relatively unaffected by the recent downturn in house prices; as the home seller has already paid for for the HIP before they know how much their house is actually going to sell for. So it doesn't matter what price the house sells for, or even if it doesn't sell at all!

The current recession has also lead to soaring levels of property repossessions and demand from people forced to put their homes onto the market due to rising debts. All of these properties require a HIP to be ordered before they can be sold, which means more business for HIP providers.

Potential turnover of up to £6k per week

Once trained, you can set up your new business as a HIP provider, where you are the boss and you dictate how your business grows. This means that as well as flexible working hours and fitting in your job role around your lifestyle, you also benefit from all of the financial rewards as well.

Alternatively, you may seek to use your new skills to gain employment within the property industry. For example, working directly for an estate agent, solicitor, construction, or surveying firm.

The table below provides an illustration of the potential weekly turnover and operating profits you should be aiming to achieve, if you decide to 'go it alone'. As you can see, you could potentially turnover up to £6,000 in an average working week!

What can you expect to get out of this HIP Inspector training?

The Green Qual HIP & Search training course will teach you how to compile HIP Code compliant packs and provide you with access to an online software system which will allow you to produce complete Home Information Packs and compete as a HIP provider.

Basically, you'll be equipped with everything you need to compile your own HIPs; whether you intend to gain employment in the property industry, or you are looking to set-up your own HIPs business.

The online software system also gives you the option to offer HIPs with deferred payment (i.e. buy now, pay later) and there is also a 'no sale, no fee' HIP. This is proving to be particularly attractive to home sellers in the current market conditions and by offering this service it will help you to stand out from the competition.
