As a factor, we organise a range of common repairs and general maintenance. A common repair is a repair that is the shared responsibility of all owners. Usually, this would cover repairs in areas such as the roof, stairs, garden area, and external walls. Your share of the responsibility will be defined in the Title Deeds for your property. We recommend that you refer to your Title Deeds to clarify your responsibility towards the common areas.
Your Deed of Condition is a legal document and details your responsibility and rights towards common repairs also known as a “burden”. Within the Deeds, there might also be information regarding the management of the common areas such as the obligations and duties of the factor. The Deeds should also define the procedures for dealing with repairs and routine maintenance, provision for insurance, and explains the procedures for the factor to recover any outstanding debts.
