Home Report Montrose
All properties being put on the market in Scotland now require a home report by law. An expertly compiled and thorough home report can be invaluable when it comes to selling a property. They are there to give buyers and sellers alike a solid reckoning of all the details – big and small – of a property ahead of any transaction. Doing so ensures there are no nasty surprises in store, offering complete peace of mind and making sure that everything has been accounted for.
With home reports, a Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) regulated surveyor with a deep knowledge of the local area and a nearby office are essential criteria.

Buying in Montrose
There are many towns that bear architectural testament to Scotland’s rich history, but Montrose is undoubtedly one of the best-preserved. Long a site of great importance for its access to the North Sea, the town has been an important centre throughout several of the most illustrious chapters in Scottish history, from medieval military importance down to its later eminence as a centre of European trade.
Montrose is characterised by its wide high street and thoroughfare and the intertwining network of secluded alleys and streets threaded throughout fine examples of architecture from a wealth of different historical periods. The town is also placed in a natural setting of great beauty, with the famous Montrose basin – a beautiful tidal lagoon and nature reserve – as well as the other attractions of the North Angus countryside being within easy reach of Montrose residents. The town also boasts such outstanding landmarks as the House of Dun and locally adored “Auld Kirk”.
Ever a centre of trade since the days of the Hanseatic League right down to the present day, Montrose has always had a thriving local economy. The town is an important commercial port for the oil and gas industry and the economy is supported by this in a lucrative triad with a thriving service sector and rapid expanding tourist industry. There is even a local initiative – Montrose Town Partnership – which seeks to develop the economic potential of the town into the future. Furthermore, in August of 2019, a £100 million plan was approved to develop one of Montrose’s many historic buildings – the former Sunnyside Royal Hospital – in 450 new homes.
In terms of property types, Montrose is exceptionally varied. Thanks to its rich history, there are many traditional properties such as sandstone and granite tenements, Victorian villas and converted properties such as the Sunnyside Royal Hospital. In addition, there are also plenty of modern developments in Montrose, with modern bungalows, terraced houses and flats in abundance.
