I was delighted to see Malcolm Cannon the Chief Executive of ESPC calling for a rethink on the Home Report. As readers of previous blogs will know I have been campaigning for a number of years for the abolition of the Home Report. Malcolm’s research coincides with my view that rather than decreasing the number of surveys it has actually led to an increase in the number of surveys being commissioned per property. Research shows that 65% of sellers who pay for the Home Report described the document as not helpful to them as a seller and 31% were of the view that the best way to improve the Home Report would be to scrap them. I would again urge the Scottish Government to create a working party to review the Home Report legislation.
