With certain limited exceptions, all properties marketed will require a Home Report, with any property sold or let requiring an Energy Performance Certificate.

A Home Report consists of three parts, namely:

  • Property Questionnaire.
  • Single Survey.
  • Energy Performance Certificate.  

Property Questionnaire 
This questionnaire must be completed by the seller or their representative. The questionnaire contains detailed information about the property including Council Tax Band, alterations, Local Authority Notices, factoring arrangements and the like. Completing this accurately and having an agent who will proactively consider the information you put in the questionnaire should reduce the risk of delay and difficulties once an offer is received.

Single Survey 
This is provided by a Chartered Surveyor and contains a detailed report on the construction of the property, its condition, and its value. This report will confirm if there are any urgent repairs or replacements required or anything likely to require attention in the future.

Energy Performance Certificate 
This is an indication of the energy efficiency rating of the property and is provided in a format like that used for domestic appliances. It also recommends ways to improve efficiency.

We can make all necessary arrangements for preparation of your Home Report as part of our marketing package.

If you would like more information, please speak to any member of our property team.
