Full marks to R House in Cornwall who are marketing an unusual 3 bed property in Torpoint.

They clearly understand the value of PR and have successfully got mentions in most of the national press as well as umpteen blogs and websites. A call to the office handling the sale however has produced the usual ‘HiP’s avoidance’ response that AHIP complain about and that will end come January 1st when the drop dead date comes into effect. “The property was first marketed on 7th September” according to Charlie Elworthy the office manager “and so does not require a HiP. We’re also pretty confident that a 3 bedroomed dolls house was not what the Government had in mind when they framed the legislation.” I shouldn’t bet on it!
