What is a Home Report?

Home buyers need confidence in your property if they’re going to close that sale. This means that they will likely have plenty of questions! How much is your property worth? How ‘Green’ is your home? Is the property in need of any building or structural work?

You’ll need to answer all these questions. But surely there’s a more efficient way of doing so? That, of course, is where a home report comes in. A home report in Glasgow will advise buyers on the condition of your property, general running costs and accessibility.

What Makes Up My Home Report?

Your Home Report will be made up of three main components.

• A single survey – which will cover property condition and valuation.
• An energy performance certificate – which will report on energy efficiency and broad costs for utilities.
• A property questionnaire – which will advise on any extra costs, parking information and council tax etc.

All three sections are very important. They’re put together by RICS qualified surveyors, who will need to run a thorough assessment of the property for sale. This way, an accurate, professional and informative report can always be produced. It provides information that you and any buyer can rely on.

Why Do I Need a Home Report?

It is your responsibility as a seller to provide a home report within nine days of a buyer having requested one, and to have this in place before your property is marketed for sale. This is advised so that they have access to information which will help them to decide on whether or not to purchase your home.

Unless you are selling a property due for demolition, one which is a newly built, or a property which is either for holiday or commercial purposes, you’ll be required to obtain and provide a Home Report

When Will I Need a Home Report?

It’s necessary to get a Home Report before you list your property for sale. A Home Report from us will put you in control of marketing your home. You’ll need to supply a home report on request. You can, of course, also take initiative to instruct a report if you already know someone wants to buy your house, say a friend or relative.

What is a Home Report?

A home report is a collection of documents which gives potential buyers information about a property for sale. Think of a report as being like a comprehensive description of what is on offer. Its purpose is to inform and to clarify, as well as providing reassurance to a potential buyer that a property may be right for them. Home buyers will have plenty of questions, and home reports will allow sellers to answer them with clear, concise documents.

What Goes into a Home Report?

A Scottish Home Report will include three basic sections:

• An Energy Performance Certificate – this shows the energy efficiency of the home along with recommendations to improve this.
• A property questionnaire – a legal document which will answer questions such as council tax band, utilities providers, common or service fees and other legal matters.
• A single survey, which describes the property and reports on condition. Our Single Survey will confirm the market value of the property and a Generic Mortgage Valuation which can be relied upon by mortgage lenders.

All three parts come together to make a report which aims to answer as many questions as possible. In Scotland, it is normally a legal requirement to provide a home report to before you market your home.

Do I Need a Home Report?

Generally speaking, if you are selling a property in Scotland, you will always need to provide a report. There are circumstances where you may be exempt, however.

You will need to approach an RICS qualified Surveyor to help you put a home report together. This applies if you are requesting a home report in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Dundee, Inverness or elsewhere around country.
