Residential Property for sale in Scotland must be marketed with a Home Report. This is a pack of three documents: a Single Survey, an Energy Report and a Property Questionnaire.
FPS Estate Agency can organise your home report as part of your selling package. We have negotiated some fantastic deals for our customers on Home Reports. Our £0 Upfront Package currently includes a 100% FREE Home Report. If you chose our fixed upfront fee package then we have negotiated a special deal for you with RICS registered surveyors.
Alternatively you can organise your own home report with a chartered surveyor of your choice and provide it to us prior to the commencement of marketing.
The Home Report is made available on request to prospective buyers of ahome. There is no legal requirement to update the Home Report provided the house remains on the market.
The Single Survey contains an assessment by a surveyor of the condition of the home and a valuation. The Energy Report contains an assessment by a surveyor of the energy efficiency of the home and its environmental impact. The Property Questionnaire is completed by the seller of the home. It contains extra information about the home, such as Council Tax banding and factoring costs.
The cost of the Home Report is based on the property value and the location of the property.
Our Surveyors have undertaken all of the necessary training and are fully qualified to carry out residential and commercial services. Our Energy Assessors are RDSAP certified through ECMK.
Additionally a mortgage valuation can be included within a home report or instructed individually.
Sellers of a property in Scotland are not required to provide a mortgage valuation for a purchaser and there is no legal requirement for them to do so either within a home report or not. It is the sole responsibility of the purchaser to provide their lender with an acceptable mortgage valuation and lenders may have specific individual requirements for acceptance of a mortgage valuation.
There is no guarantee they will lend upon any mortgage valuation and we would advise those purchasing a property to contact their specific lender first to confirm acceptance of our mortgage valuation if relying upon.
