When a residential property is sold in Scotland it has to be marketed with a Home Report which must be provided to prospective purchasers. We have specially trained Surveyors covering all areas of Scotland and we pride ourselves on our level of service and expertise.
The Home Report is instructed by the seller of the property or their agent and consists of three mandatory documents (a single survey, an energy report and a property questionnaire) together with a mortgage valuation report which importantly allows the report to be utilised by any prospective purchasers’ lender.
Home Reports can be provided through our own unique GS Home Report platform or prepared in a way that suits your estate agents requirements. We are a trusted name in the Scottish property market and our valuations, surveys and reports are recognised by all key mortgage providers. Our network of offices covers the whole of Scotland and allows us to deliver a cost effective local service throughout the country.
For more service details, see below:
A Single Survey document provides an assessment of the condition of the home being sold. It contains information on areas where repairs are needed. It also includes an accessibility information section, together with a market value and insurance valuation of the property. The survey itself is carried out by one of our highly experienced surveyors.
An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) gives information on how energy efficient a building is and sets out cost-effective ways in which its energy efficiency could be improved. An EPC must be provided to any prospective buyer or tenant when a property is sold or rented. We have specially trained surveyors in each of our offices who are able to prepare EPCs.
These questionnaires are completed by the seller. They contain extra information about the home being sold, such as Council Tax banding and factoring costs that will be useful to buyers. You can download the document from the Scottish Government website.
The mortgage valuation section of the Home Report summarises the information contained within the Single Survey and importantly allows the report to be used by a prospective purchasers lender.
