How Much Does a Home Report Cost?

There is no straightforward answer to this question: the price of a home report can vary significantly based on a range of factors. Naturally, these include the size of your property, the value, condition, size, but the price of a home report may also be dependent on the age and potentially even the time of year that it is being carried out.

Why Home Report Costs Vary

As mentioned, the price of your home report can vary fairly significantly based on a number of factors.  These factors primarily involve the property itself – its age, value and location – however, the cost of inspection and the travelling costs of the surveyor are also taken into account. Shepherd Chartered Surveyors have offices right across the country, meaning this particular cost is guaranteed not to be excessive. As a rule of thumb, the older, larger, more valuable and further afield your property is, the more you can expect to pay for a home report. The general condition of your property may also be a deciding factor, and brand new properties put on the market for the first time do not require a home report at all.

What You Should Expect to Pay

Every property is different, and home report prices will vary depending on a number of factors, not least the size and location of the property. Shepherd Chartered Surveyors typically charge from £300 + VAT for properties under £100,000 in value. As the most common value of residential property in Scotland is between £100,000 and £200,000 a typical Home Report cost in this value range will be around £350-£400 + VAT. The final cost depends predominantly on various factors such as value, age, condition, size and location. Contact us below for a free quote today and one of our team will respond within 24 hours.

What’s Included in the Cost

A home report covers a great deal more than a simple valuation of your property and consists of four separate components, a single survey, a mortgage valuation, an energy report and a property questionnaire. You can find out more about these components but, generally speaking, this covers everything from the condition of individual components of your property (rated on a three-point scale) to your home’s energy efficiency to additional information supplied by the seller such as council tax bands and heating plans. Also included in the cost is the price of the inspection and the travel costs for the chartered surveyor to visit your home.

What to Expect from Your Surveyor

When you first contact Shepherd Chartered Surveyors, you are sure of being put in touch with a qualified chartered surveyor to answer any questions and provide you with a quote. Generally speaking, a chartered surveyor should be accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and possess a good knowledge of the local area. It is therefore important that your surveyor comes from an office close by. With offices right across the country, you can be guaranteed of this with a Shepherd’s Chartered Surveyor, regardless of how remote your property.
