Thank you to everyone who signed this petition. This petition is now closed.
Having bought a house based on a Home Report, the surveyor missed approx. £40k worth essential repairs, to make the house wind and water tight, and over valued the property £40,000.
We believe there are many similar cases of faulty or negligent Home Reports across Scotland and believe that the current system is failing house buyers and costing people thousands in unexpected repair bills, not to mention the stress and financial worry associated with a legal battle.
We, the undersigned, call on the Scottish Government to scrap the current Home Report system in favour of a more robust, accountable and accurate survey.
