Factored Property

Lochaber Housing Association provides property maintenance services to owners and sharing owners acting as a common factor. Our service aims to help owners maintain the common parts of their homes and avoid all the hassle and problems that can arise for owners when a property deteriorates when no-one takes responsibility.

The Association is registered with the Scottish Property Factors Register, which is a requirement of the Property Factors (Scotland) Act 2011. Our Registration Number is PF000360.

As part of our factoring service we:

  • provide a Service Statement to all factored owners
  • adhere to the Code of Conduct set out by the Scottish Government.
