Research to Inform the Five Year Review of the Home Report

Conducted to inform the five-year review of the Home Report. This research followed on from, and was informed by, the Home Report public consultation launched on 5 December 2013. The research study was conducted by Ipsos MORI and Retties and Co. and examined how the Home Report has performed over the past 5 years.


Most importantly, we would like to thank all the participants in this research. This includes all the buyers and sellers who completed and returned the survey and the potential buyers and sellers who agreed to be interviewed. Also, thanks to all the individuals from a range of stakeholder organisations who generously gave up their time to contribute their views.

We would also like to thank Ruth Whatling and Valerie Sneddon from the Scottish Government for their support and guidance throughout the project.

We would like to thank Kennedy Foster of the Council of Mortgage Lenders for his assistance in providing contact details for lenders.

Finally, we would like to thank the Research Advisory Group for their invaluable input into the research, in particular Mark Hordern for his assistance in accessing Solicitors Property Centres data.
