Your responsibilities 

Your responsibilities as a factored homeowner is outlined in your Title Deeds, we do not hold copies of your Title Deeds.  However, you can purpose a copy of these from Registers of Scotland.  

In more general terms, it is your responsibility to (1) report common area repairs as soon as you become aware there is an issue and (2) keep the common parts of your building clean, well maintained and in good order.  Find out how to report a repair here.  

We recommend all homeowners to have comprehensive building insurance, and in some cases the Title Deeds specify that this is an enforceable requirement.

Costs of maintaining the property and any repairs required, will be divided among owners based on your title deeds (we have not influence over the share of costs defined in the title deeds).   We aim to provide you with easily understood bills on a six monthly basis, which gives details of your share of charges during each billing period.   We will only issue bills in the name of the property owner and will not issue them to tenants where the property is rented out by you.

Our billing periods cover 1 April to 30 September and 1 October to 31 March and we aim to issue the bills within six weeks of the end of each period. We require our bills to be paid in full within 28-days of the date of the bill.  Find out more about the billing arrangements in our Written Statement of Services.
