Remove The Hassle From Getting a Home Report

Since the end of 2008 the Home Report has been a legal requirement for almost all properties for sale in Scotland. Its purpose is simple – to give prospective buyers good information about the condition and value of the property.

We provide Home Reports for all types of property in Edinburgh, from EH1 to EH55. Our unique combination of national coverage and exceptional local knowledge means we deliver exactly what you need.

What’s in the Home Report?

It consists of three separate documents – the Single Survey, the Energy Report and the Property Questionnaire.

- The Single Survey

A surveyor (that’s us) assesses the condition of the property, places a value on it and includes an accessibility audit for people with particular needs.

- The Energy Report 

This highlights the energy efficiency of a home and looks at its environmental impact. It also suggests ways to improve energy efficiency.

- The Property Questionnaire

This is completed by the property seller. It gives useful information about the house, including things like council tax and factoring costs.

Our website offers more information about the Home Report and lets you ask for a free quote for a Home Report. We’re also happy to answer any questions you may have.

New insights into Auld Reekie

The Athens of the North, Embra or “What Paris ought to be” – there are many nicknames for Scotland’s beloved capital city. We’ve heard them all. The city itself has many faces, many areas and many different types of property – from modern types to thatch roof farms to sandstone townhouses. With such extensive local knowledge, we can comprehensively survey the properties and areas of Edinburgh providing you with not only an accurate home report but one that is trusted by all banks, building societies and other mortgage providers.

Knowing the Market Intimately

Values between properties can vary significantly, even if those properties are of the same type and on the same street. Differences come from postcodes, internal condition, future area planning permissions and more – all of which are taken into account when we conduct a home report and valuation. Naturally, these differences also mean the successful amount offered to secure a purchase will also vary from property to property. We ensure accurate valuations and reports so sellers have an informed and realistic picture of the offers that their home might achieve.
