When it comes to selling a property in Scotland a home report is required by law. A home report that is expertly compiled by an experienced team of Chartered Surveyors can prove to be a vital component in the overall process of selling a property.

They are there to give buyers and sellers alike peace of mind on of all the details of the property – big and small – ahead of advanced stages of the transaction. Doing so ensures there are no nasty surprises in store and that everything has been accounted for.

Buying in Bonnyrigg
Bonnyrigg with a population of roughly 18,000 residents is a town in Midlothian about eight miles southeast of Edinburgh City Centre. A former mining town that today is better known as a leafy commuter town for workers in Edinburgh and the Lothians.
Naturally, transport links for the town are good, and with its proximity to Edinburgh, is a major factor leading to significant amounts of new housing developments built in and around the town. Transport links were boosted at the opening of the Borders Railway in 2015 which meant the town was reconnected to the rail network via a station at nearby Eskbank. Bus services run frequently into Princes Street and elsewhere in the Lothians. For car users the nearby A7 road offers connections to the Edinburgh City Bypass and other routes into Edinburgh and the wider Lothians.
In terms of amenities and things to do, for walkers, the Penicuik–Dalkeith Walkway passes close by, and for cyclists National Cycle Route 1 plus NCN 196 pass through the town. The local golf course is Broomieknowe Golf Club. Bonnyrigg also has a spa and falconry at the nearby Dalhousie Castle. King George V Park is the local park and is well maintained with a children’s play area, football pitches and some monuments.
