What is a Home Report?

A Home Report provides potential buyers with information about a property’s condition, value, and energy efficiency. It will be carried out by a Chartered Surveyor who will need to visit your property.

How will my property be valued?

We will visit your property and provide an indicative property valuation based on our insight and analysis of similar properties that have sold in the area. A Chartered Surveyor will then provide a Home Report valuation, which will be the guide price for potential purchasers.

Do I need to carry out viewings?

Wherever possible we advise property owners to carry out viewings (we will send you our viewing guide). As owners you can provide the best possible viewing experience to potential buyers.

When should I do viewings?

Viewings are either done by appointment at a mutually convenient time or by open viewing, usually on a Sunday between 2.00pm-4.00pm. We can advise what will work best for you and your property.

What is the closing date?

A closing date is a specified deadline by which interested buyers must submit their best and final offers to purchase the property.

Do I need a solicitor?

Yes, once you have accepted an offer you need to appoint a solicitor to start the conveyancing process. We can introduce you to our partner solicitor or you can choose your own.

Should I choose an ESPC agent

Historically, using a solicitor firm was the only option available when selling property. Today, across the UK, there is a move to specialised estate agents and conveyancers who are delivering higher levels of customer service and better standards in preparing, marketing, and selling property.

Edinburgh is unusual in its continued emphasis on solicitor agents, and to advertise on ESPC you must be a solicitor firm. ESPC would love to maintain that status quo. However, the truth is that property buyers don’t limit themselves to
one platform when hunting for their potential dream home, and ESPC isn’t as widely recognised outside of Edinburgh or internationally as other property portals such as Rightmove.

We believe that a specialised team means sellers get the best of both worlds: they can work with someone who cares about their property, and are specialists in preparing, marketing, and negotiating, while still having access to well-known, high-traffic advertising portals.

Should I choose an agent with an in-house solicitor?

The most important thing at the legal end of the selling journey is good communication. While some agents claim to have an in-house solicitor team, they often operate as separate entities with limited communication between them. Our commitment to better customer service means we ensure we get regular updates from our recommended solicitors to keep your mind at ease. And if you have a solicitor that you already trust, we’d be happy to work with them.

What is the conveyancing process?

Conveyancing is the legal process of transferring ownership of a property from one person to another. It includes preparing and reviewing legal documents, conducting property searches, and facilitating the financial transaction.

What are conveyance searches?

During the conveyancing process, a solicitor will perform searches of Land Registry and Local Authority information in relation to your property. They will be checking for planning history, any potential developments and other environmental concerns.
