Wish is had gone with you guys before
We were promised a a quick sale from various companies and in actual fact only came back to you when an other company failed. Just delighted that despite the fact the flat next door had suffered serious fire damage we were able to sell the flat and move on

What is a Home Report?

What is a Home Report?

So you’ve decided it’s time to sell your home and put it on the market. You will have to provide a Home Report for potential buyers to view. So what is a Home Report?

A Home Report is a pack put together simply to help a buyer find out more information on a property and it is essential that you have one. The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) in Scotland has confirmed that Home Reports will cost between £585 and £820. The cost will depend on the size of your home and the surveyor you decide to use.

We would cover the costs of your Home Report and Legal Fees when buying your property.


What is a Home Report?

The Home Report contains a single survey, an energy report and a property questionnaire.


Single Survey:

The Single Survey gives sellers detailed information about the condition and value of a property. It also gives buyers better information about the condition and value of a home to aid them in making an offer to purchase.

The Single Survey includes an accessibility audit. Scotland is the first country to require that the accessible features of every home for sale are highlighted to potential buyers. This information will benefit parents with young children and older people, as well as disabled people.

What is a home report?

Energy Report:

The Energy Report gives a home’s energy efficiency rating and its environmental impact in terms of carbon dioxide emissions. It recommends ways to improve the building’s energy efficiency and save fuel costs.

Insulation, windows and boiler efficiency are all important to the Energy Report.

Property Questionnaire:

The Property Questionnaire contains general information for home buyers.

It would include, for example: a home’s council tax band, parking facilities, factoring arrangements, any local authority notices that affect it and alterations that have been made to the home.The Property Questionnaire should also reduce the risk of delay and difficulties in conveyancing.


What is a Home Report?

Although helpful to prospective buyers a Home Report is a significant cost to pay. When we buy property we bare that cost as well as your legal fees – saving you a considerable outlay compared to selling through an Estate Agent.
