The Dreaded Home Report

Readers of my blog will know I am no fan of the Home Report.  In my opinion this was a misguided piece of legislation brought in to deal with a problem that did not exist and the impact it has had on the Scottish property market has been catastrophic and expensive.  I am delighted to hear that the Scottish Government has launched a public consultation to seek views and experiences on the Home Report and how it works in the current market.  My understanding is that the Scottish Government has already made up its minds that there will be no change to the Home Report, however, I would still urge people to submit their views.  The website page is homereportconsultation@scotland.gsi.gov.uk.  The closing date for the consultation is the end of February 2014 and the information will thereafter be collated and a report provided later this year.  I will let you know should I hear anything further.
