MILL can assist in facilitating the maintenance of tenement blocks and help arrange repairs. Coordinating fabric repairs in buildings of multiple ownership can be a difficult and challenging task. We can assist with forming Stair Group associations, starting up Reserve Funds and preparing conditional inspections.
The law may be changing soon. There is a bill being considered by the Scottish Government to enforce:
- Creation of Reserve Funds (a pension pot for the building)
- The formation of Owners Associations
- Quinquennial Inspections (5 yearly conditional reports)
It is vital, therefore, if you own a property in a tenement, that you start to look at your building as a whole, find out its condition and talk to your neighbours with a view to creating a community within your block. We will guide you through this to ease the repair and report-writing process.
