what is a home report? 

A home report is a pack of documents that give potential buyers a clearer picture of the property condition. The report includes the Single Survey, The Energy Performance Report and the Property Questionaire.

In Scotland, it is a legal requirement for sellers to commission a Home Report when they sell a home. A copy of the home report must be available to potential buyers when requested. A buyer may also choose to have a separate survey of their own completed before they commit to buying.

If a property does not have a Home Report when it goes to market, both the seller and the agent risk a fine.

The Single Survey

The single survey includes a report on the condition of the property, a market valuation of the property, and accessibility for people with particular needs.

The EPC Report

The Energy Performance Certificate shows the energy efficiency of the property and its environmental impact. It will also give recommendations on how to make the property more energy efficient.

The Property Questionnaire

The property questionnaire is completed by the seller giving an overview of other useful information such as the property’s Council Tax band, Utility supplier and any alterations made.
