If you are about to put your property on the market, here’s the first things you need to consider about home reports. Nearly all homes for sale in Scotland require a home report. It’s that straight-forward. Certain properties are exempt from this; for example, all new build properties. In the overwhelming majority of property sales however, anyone selling their home needs to provide a home report for prospective buyers.

What is a Home Report?

The Home Report is a collection of documents relating to the condition and valuation of the home. Details include energy efficiency and other essential information. The home report contains three documents:

Single Survey

Detailed information on the condition and value of the property. Includes an audit of accessible features useful for older and disabled people, and parents with young children. The Single Survey can only be compiled by a RICS qualified Surveyor. All of our Single Surveys contain a Generic Mortgage Valuation accepted by mortgage lender. Good to know!

Energy Report

Energy efficiency certificate and environmental impact of the home. Recommends ways to improve energy efficiency and reduce emissions of the property. Helps buyers to compare general energy costs between homes. The Energy Condition Certificate can only be compiled by an accredited Domestic Energy Assessor.

Property Questionnaire

Includes information such as council tax band, parking facilities, relevant local authority notices, factoring arrangements and alterations made to the property. The Property Questionnaire is completed by the seller or nominee.
