What is a Home Buyer’s Survey?

When it comes to selling your property, the best tactic is to provide your buyers with plenty of confidence. Not only are you going to need to prepare your property for sale, but you should be ready to answer any and all questions which may arise.

Home Report Scotland can help you to prepare all the documentation to make your home ready for public sale – but what exactly is involved when it comes to a Home Report survey?

Home Report Survey – What’s Included

The purpose of a home report survey is to advise any potential buyers on what they can expect from their new home. Details they may wish to know about before they enter into a sale can include property value, any problem areas which need repair, and features for accessibility.

Think about the questions you may want to ask when you look to buy a home for the first time. Chances are, everyone has very similar things to ask! You’d want to know that you are getting great value for your money and that there are no nasty surprises hidden along the way.

Home Report Features

Filing a home report Scotland or elsewhere will involve making sure there is a full assessment of the structure of your property.

This may including checking walls, services, fittings, fixtures and roofing. While it may seem that you can provide too much detail, there is no such thing when it comes to securing the perfect sale!

Energy and Accessibility

The Energy Performance Certificate is a neat report contained within a Home Report to show how energy efficient the house is. Energy prices will vary from home to home as a result of a number of different factors. Therefore, it is always a good idea to learn as much about this aspect of a property as possible.

You’ll need to file a full home buyer’s survey on request with the support of trusted RICS qualified surveyors. They will be able to fully inspect your property and will answer many of the questions you have as part of home report requests.

With that in mind, it pays to act sooner rather than later when it comes to arranging for surveying and reports. Don’t worry – help is at hand.
