How can our team help you?
Edinburgh residential property sales aren’t always the most stress-free deals; there are a lot of factors that can change a buyer’s mind and a lot of money can rest in the balance. Thankfully, Home Report For You can take the stress out of one of the formal requirements that you will be expected to meet under Scottish government law.
At Home Report For You, our Edinburgh experts hold fantastic local knowledge and can produce a home report in a simple and straightforward process, as quickly as possible. There are three documents required for the building surveying report: the Single Survey, the Energy Report, and the Property Questionnaire. Our Edinburgh team ensure that these are collated and prepared in one easy to follow report within a short space of time, ready for you to market your Edinburgh home.
Why do you need a Home Report in Edinburgh?
If you are thinking of selling your Edinburgh home, it will trigger the Housing (Scotland) Act 2006. This Act states that from 1st December 2008, anybody who wishes to market the sale of their house in Edinburgh must provide a Home Report to a prospective buyer. Marketing includes things like advertising through an agent, and also letting the public know that the house is for sale. Once this happens, if a prospective buyer wishes to see a copy of the Home Report for your home, you must provide it to them within nine days – not to do so could incur a penalty charge of £500 from the local authority.
A Home Report is a legal requirement if you are going to market your house for sale. The Home Report itself must be prepared by a correctly qualified professional. The Single Survey is legally required to be prepared by a chartered surveyor who is registered with the Royal Institution of Surveyors (RICS). The Energy Report must be produced by a professional who is accredited through an authorised government scheme. At Home Report For You, all of our professional surveyors hold the necessary legal qualifications.

Why choose Home Report For You?
Instructing chartered surveyors with the right qualifications is what Home Report For You does well, but that’s not all. We also ensure that surveyors local to Edinburgh are instructed to carry out surveys and prepare reports for residential property in and around the area.
As well as keeping costs down, the main advantage is that our local professionals have extensive knowledge, and so can provide the high-quality Home Report valuation you need. This is different to an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) and will include an accurate valuation and bespoke recommendations for saving energy (both contained within the Single Survey and Energy Report). This makes for a simpler process and means that Home Report For You can offer a higher value package than other providers.
We also know that sometimes, the Property Questionnaire – which forms the third document of the Home Report – can be a little less than straightforward. The seller must complete this document, but we can offer guidance and advice using our industry experience to help keep your concerns to a minimum.
