Organising common repairs, especially where there is no property factor requires some knowledge of buildings and can be time consuming. This advice provides pointers as to help and assistance you can access as a group of homeowners.
This advice is for all owner occupiers and owner landlords of tenement buildings.
There are situations where the property factor (if you have one) may be reluctant to take on the risk of proceeding with a repair on behalf of owners. These include:
If the matter is not resolved within a reasonable period of time, this can result in a property falling into serious disrepair. The value of the property might also fall.
Where there is no property factor, the Council will consider providing financial support to owners to carry out a repair to encourage owners to appoint a property factor to act on their behalf in the future.
