Home Report for Buyers - Changes in the Buying Process in Scotland.

All sellers who have put their home on the market must have a Home Report and provide a copy, on request, to prospective buyers. There are, though, some exceptions to the duties to provide a Home Report, including new housing and houses that have been converted.

There are three parts of the Home Report: a Single Survey, an Energy Report, and a Property Questionnaire. For more information about them, visit our interactive guide.

The advice section more information including how to obtain a copy of a Home Report and whether there is any cost to you.
