Home Report

Requirement for all property sales in Scotland

On December 1st 2008, the Scottish Government introduced the Home Report. Under this legislation, any new property brought to market must have an accompanying Home Report. The Home Report is intended to provide interested buyers with detailed information about a property before they consider submitting an offer.

Single Survey

It provides sellers with detailed information about the condition / value of a home before it is marketed for sale.

Energy Report

The Energy Report provides information regarding a home's energy efficiency rating and its environmental impact in terms of CO2 emissions.

Property Questionnaire

This contains information for home buyers, solicitors and surveyors. It would include, for example: a home's council tax band, etc

Who will compile my Home Report?

The Home Report will be compiled by a Chartered Surveyor who will have expert local knowledge, and will be acceptable to every lenders panel. All Surveyors are members of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and have extensive knowledge of properties throughout Scotland. As the property seller you will require to provide the information for the Property Questionnaire which can be completed via their online system.

How long does it take to produce a Home Report?

Following the inspection at the property we aim to have your report ready within five working days.
