Hi, I am in the proces of putting my place up for sale. Have been quoted £350 incl of VAT. Is that a reasonable price. What is the averrage price people have paid.Property is in London and freehold.Thanks
For those intrested. I managed to negotiate the price down to £299. Providers know you can easily find someone cheaper. The profit margin is incredibly high. They don't have to do anyhting at all. You fill in a form and send back by email. It's only the energy assessor who has to do any physical work. He comes and assess your place for energy efficiency and it takes half an hour. The independent cost for the energy assessor is £80 which is included in the HIPS package. Work out the math. Very good news that it's going to be scrapped but I understand it's going to be in a slightly different form and there is still a charge. So it it's not scrapped totally.
