How can we help you?
We know selling your house is not always a straightforward process, especially with all of the formalities that need to be checked before a deal can be done. One formality here in Scotland is that sellers need to be able to provide prospective buyers with a Home Report. With ‘Home Report For You’, we aim to make this requirement straightforward so this part of the selling process is kept as simple and quick as it should be by arranging for the right professionals to prepare, draft and complete your Home Report as efficiently as possible.
At ‘Home Report For You’, we can make sure that a great value Home Report with all the relevant documents is prepared in a short space of time. The Single Survey, the Energy Report and the Property Questionnaire will all be collated ready for you to market your home in accordance with Scottish law.
Why do you need a Home Report?
Since December 2008, if you’re selling your home in Scotland, it’s highly likely that you’ll want to market your property to the public. This doesn’t only mean advertising through an agent. If you make the details of the sale of your home available to the public in any way, this is likely to be considered marketing. As soon as you are considered to be marketing the sale of your house, if a prospective buyer asks you for a copy of the Home Report (under the Housing (Scotland) Act 2006), you must provide a copy to that interested party within nine days of them asking – if you don’t, the local authority have the power to fine you £500.
Of course, the Home Report can’t just be prepared by anyone – only surveyors registered or authorised to practice by the Royal Chartered Institution of Surveyors are allowed to prepare the Single Survey and only government-accredited surveyors are able to prepare the Energy Report.
