What is a Home Report?

A Home Report is legally required for all property sales in Scotland and must be provided by the seller so that potential buyers can make an informed decision on the purchase.

The report will be able to give the buyer an overview of the condition and value of the property, its energy efficiency and any information about the home that could influence their decision to buy.

A Home Report will include:

  • Single Survey
  • Energy Report
  • Property Questionnaire

The Single Survey is undertaken by a RICS accredited surveyor who will also obtain the Energy Report. The Property Questionnaire must be completed honestly and accurately by the seller.

The cost of a Home Report will depend on the size of your property and can range from £250 to £750 on average.

What is a Single Survey?

This element of the Home Report is undertaken by a RICS surveyor. Much like the Level 2 Property Survey (formerly known as the Homebuyer Report), a Single Survey will review the condition of the property and highlight any areas of the home where there are concerns or repairs and work is required. This includes the plumbing, external and internal walls and kitchen fittings.

This allows buyers to make an educated decision on the property before committing to purchase.

What is an Energy Report?

An Energy Report provides details of the energy performance of the home, including how it uses and conserves energy.

You will be provided with an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) which rates the energy efficiency of the house.

The energy ratings on the certificate are labelled by letter and colour, with an A (light green) being efficient and the lowest, a G in dark red, being “inefficient”. This allows the buyer to get an idea of energy costs prior to buying the home and indicate any improvements which may be required to improve the energy efficiency, such as insulation and doubled glazed windows.

This element is completed by the seller who is obligated to be accurate and honest when completing the questionnaire. Sellers can consult their conveyancing solicitor and surveyor if they need assistance with certain questions.

  • Alterations on the property (including extensions)
  • Council Tax Banding
  • Parking
  • Any history of flooding
  • Any local authority notices
  • Details of ground rent on the property if it is leasehold
  • Charges for upkeep on any communal areas (if applicable)
