Switching factors, or managing agents, is not as difficult as perceived. We have made three easy to follow videos to help you switch.

← What we do

Here are three helpful video guides to take you through the process of how to switch Property Factor (Managing Agent).

Explaining our role as a Property Factor:

In Scotland, every Property Manager sometimes referred to as a Property Factor, must be listed on the Property Factors register, to comply with the Property Factors Scotland Act 2011. In this video, we outline our role as a Property Factor.

Are you happy with your Property Factor?

When buying your home, you may not have had a say in who the Property Factor is, and you may be unaware of what they do and why. If you’re not satisfied with the service you receive, then the good news is that you’re not stuck with them, change is possible.

How do I change Property Factor?

Here we outline the steps and processes you can follow to begin to make that change and how we can help and guide you through the process.

We know that all things to do with your Property Factor can be confusing, so we’ve created these videos with all you need to know. Is it time for a change? Then we can help…

Step 1 – Get together and talk with your neighbours and fellow owners. If you all feel your Property Factor could do better, then make the decision to change. Your Deed of Conditions will advise you what you need to do next – as these are unique to your development.
