Worth reading this article.


I agree, theres a conflict of interest for agents to use this. Buyers should NOT be charged a fee as their client is the vendor.

Looks like more nanny state interference to me.
A simpler solution would be to change to the Scottish law for property transactions which includes the seller paying for a Home Report, completed by a surveyor, before they can sell. This details property defects.
