Appendix A- Buyers and Sellers Postal Questionnaire

Home Report Survey

From December 2008, homes for sale in Scotland have been marketed with a Home Report made up of three documents: a Single Survey (including a valuation), an Energy Report, and a Property Questionnaire.

Ipsos MORI are conducting this survey to inform the Scottish Government's scheduled 5 year review of the Home Report; asking those who have used it what their experiences were and how it could be improved.

In order to do this Ipsos MORI would be grateful if the homeowner would complete this survey, expressing their personal experiences of the home report.

On receiving your survey, Ipsos MORI will enter you into a free prize draw to win £500 cash.

This questionnaire contains three sections:

  • Section A - Buying your current home
  • Section B - Selling your last home
  • Section C - About yourself.

BEFORE YOU FILL IN YOUR SURVEY PLEASE READ THE INFORMATION BELOW

Please be assured that the confidentiality of your responses will be maintained and that no personal details or individual responses will be disclosed to any third party.

Most questions require 'tick box' responses. Please read each question carefully and cross (x) the box which comes closest to your views. Please only cross one box for each question, unless asked to cross more than one box. If you cross a box and want to change this, please score over your first answer and then cross your new answer in the box that applies. Please fill in the questionnaire using black or blue ink. The survey should take no longer than 25 minutes to complete.
