Home Reports

It is important that you know what you are getting when you instruct a Home Report.

There are a number of companies which seem to offer cut price Home Reports.  These Home Reports are more than likely not to include the “expensive” Mortgage Valuation Report. 

Despite being 100% legal for marketing purposes, in order for any purchaser to receive funding from any Lender they require a Home Report that includes a Mortgage Valuation Report.

This may result in you having to pay twice for your Home Report.

Move Quick only instructs reputable RICS Surveyors to provide Home Reports with full Mortgage Valuations that are acceptable to all mortgage lenders.

At Move Quick we are able to defer the full cost of your Home Report meaning you only pay us once the property sells.

Why do I need a Home Report in Scotland? 

From 1st December 2008 any new property to the market requires a Home Report. The Home Report includes important information about the property which should help to improve the home buying and selling process by making upfront information available to any prospective purchaser.

What does a Home Report contain?

The Scottish Home Report will include the following documents:

  • Single Survey The survey provides sellers with detailed information about the condition and value of their home before it is marketed for sale. It also includes an accessibility audit.
  • Energy Report  This gives a home’s energy efficiency rating and its environmental impact in terms of carbon dioxide emissions.
  • Property Questionnaire This section of the report is completed by the seller and contains information for any buyer, solicitors and surveyors, for example a home’s council tax band or local authority notices relating to it.

What does the Home Report in Scotland offer to Buyers?

The Home Report is designed to ensure that information needed by any potential buyers is available to you when you need it. It brings together key information needed by buyers and sellers at the very start of the buying process, and ensures that important information about improving the energy efficiency of homes is made available when a property is sold.

The property questionnaire can help a buyer assess additional monthly costs such as council tax and the Energy Report can also provide guidance to a buyer on how they could make the property more energy efficient.

If you require further information about Home Reports or selling your home, please do not hesitate to contact us.  We are open 7 days a week to answer any queries.
