It's common knowledge that the process of selling your home can be stressful, something the team at Onesurvey are well aware of.

Using a Onesurvey home report means you are supported and advised every step of the way from producing your home report and distributing copies to your interested buyers.

There can be a lot of confusion around the legislation for home reports and what is required from you, the seller therefore we recommend you take a quick look through the FAQs below.

Frequently asked questions by Property Sellers

NO!  This is a common misconception. There is no shelf life on a home report, however, the misunderstanding arises from two different factors:

  1. The documents within your home report cannot be more than 3 months old when you go to market.
  2. When you find a purchaser, their lender will often request an update on the home report if the documents are more than 3 months old - this is not legislation but a lender requirement

The cost of a home report will vary according to the value of your property - the higher the value of your property the more you will pay for a home report.

Yes you do. If you are marketing a residential property in Scotland you need a home report regardless of whether you are using a selling agent or not.

Marketing means you are advertising your property for sale. 

If, however, you have decided to sell to someone you know and have never advertised the property you will not need a home report... but be aware that the purchaser's solicitor may insist you get one anyway.

No, Once you have paid for a home report you can use it any way you wish.

However, if the agent paid for your home report then they would expect you to reimburse them for the cost or they could refuse to let you use the document.

The legislation states that you must provide a copy of the home report no later than 9 days after the original request.

PLEASE NOTE: You must be in possession of the home report before marketing can commence

There is a penalty of £500 if you are caught marketing your home without a home report

If a major problem was uncovered within the home report then the value placed by the surveyor would reflect this.  You can then decide if you want to make good the repairs and then have an updated report or you can continue to market.
