How can we help you?

If you are considering putting your home on the market for sale, you’ll need a Home Report – this is a report that comprises of three documents: the Single Survey, the Energy Report and the Property Questionnaire. Things contained within the Single Survey will give buyers clear information about the condition and value of your home before they make an offer to purchase, which can make for greater certainty and reduce ambiguity, helping to reduce the stress in these types of situations.

The Energy Report is prepared by a relevant expert to calculate your home’s energy efficiency rating and its environmental impact in terms of carbon dioxide emissions. So as to be helpful in marketing your property, at ‘Home Report For You’, the Energy Report also makes recommendations to improve your home’s efficiency and even suggests how to save fuel costs. Any prospective buyers can feel reassured in knowing an expert has reviewed the property already.

Why you need a Home Report

Why do you need a Home Report?

The law changed in December 2008 to say that anyone who wished to market their home for sale in Scotland must be able to provide a Home Report to a prospective buyer within nine days of that person asking for it. The law remains the same today and if, as a seller, you are unable to meet this requirement, you could be fined £500 by the local authority and risk possibility of invalidating any marketed sale.

The law also states that only surveyors registered with or authorised to practise by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors can prepare Single Surveys and only accredited professionals are allowed to produce an Energy Report. All of the surveyors from ‘Home Report For You’ conform with the legal requirements to be able to produce a Single Survey and an Energy Report.
