What do you need to know about Scottish home reports?
It is mandatory that anyone selling a home in Scotland commission a home report to detail their property’s condition. A report will include three documents: the single survey, energy report and property questionnaire. A buyer may also want to commission a report themselves.
Having the report done by a qualified professional is important - any discrepancies or disagreements will likely need to be solved by referencing the report, and so poorly done work will undoubtedly cause problems down the line.
A professional should be able to provide details of their experience and qualifications, including reviews from their previous clients. They may also be a part of a national tradesmans’ organisation like the RICS. It is important that your surveyor has public liability insurance, in case they fail to notice something that costs you down the line.
According to the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors, having a Scottish home survey done will cost between £585 and £820 on average.
