You can search for a particular

HIP using the Findfilter box (see next slide for criteria)

Alternatively, the filters can be changed to narrow searches to HIPS with the same criteria. E.g. all HIPs instructed by a particular Supplier.

HIPSworld guide - Estate Agent / Supplier

slide14

Searching Criteria

  • The HIPSworld upgrade in August 2008 has some changes to the search criteria:
  • Searching is still possible on the HIP ID, postcode, part of the address or vendor’s surname (now with a minimum of 2 characters).
  • The big change is that if you are searching with part of the information, you need to follow the part search with an asterix *
  • For example vendor Smith type in Smi*
  • For a specific HIP search, type in hip before the hip id,

e.g. hip 12345
