You Need a Home Report

After your property is valued, the next step is to get a Home Report. Everyone selling a property in Scotland must pay for a Home Report before they market their home to prospective buyers. A copy must be available for potential buyers to read.

A Home Report gives potential buyers information that helps them decide if they want to make an offer and how much they think the property is worth.

What is a Home Report?

The Home Report is a professional report prepared by a chartered surveyor which includes:

  • A Single Survey – an assessment of the condition of the home, a valuation and an accessibility audit for people with particular needs.
  • The Energy Report – an assessment of the energy efficiency of the home and its environmental impact. It also includes an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) and recommends ways to improve energy efficiency.
  • The Property Questionnaire – completed by the seller of the home and contains additional information such as council tax banding and inform you of any alternation that have been made to the property by the current owner if any.
  • A Mortgage Valuation Report (MVR), – this lets potential purchasers establish the availability of a mortgage. Most lenders will accept the report if it is dated within 3 months of the surveyors visit, the buyer’s lender may ask for a refresh if the expiry date is imminent. In some circumstances were the surveyor of the home report is not on the potential buyers lending panel a second survey will be instructed at the buyer’s expense.

Is the house price fixed by the Home Report?

The survey valuation in the Home Report takes the condition and situation of the property, together with the demand for a particular size, nature and type of property in the area into account. Comparable sales figures also influence the current market value. Properties are being advertised at ‘offers over’ or ‘offers around’ to reflect the fact that buyers have access to a valuation from the outset.

The survey valuation is an approximation and buyers may make an offer over the valuation if they are particularly keen to secure the property.

How much is a Home Report?

The cost of a Home Report depends on the value of your property, which determines the cost of the single survey.
