About the Forum

Property Maintenance Forums are one way in which SFHA supports members by providing an opportunity for Property Maintenance practitioners to come together to learn about current issues facing the sector as well as a chance to share best practice.

February 2019 Meeting

The SFHA Property Maintenance Forum will meet on 18 February at 12.00 - 14.00.

In Focus

The in focus at this SFHA Property Maintenance Forum will be a consulation on a report on maintaining mixed tenure tenements.

The maintenance and repair of mixed ownership tenements is a growing issue. Many housing associations have highlighted concerns about difficulties faced in repairing tenement flats, with getting some owners and private landlords to pay for repairs a real challenge. The issue has become so serious that a group of MSPs from all parties, supported by professional and membership bodies such as RICS, RIAS, SFHA and the Built Environment Forum Scotland set up a working group to develop proposals to resolve the problem.

The group has published a draft report following work by Professor Douglas Robertson. The report proposes a requirement for 5 yearly building surveys, sinking funds and owners’ associations.

SFHA wants to hear your views on the proposals in the draft report and what changes are needed to ensure the future of our tenements.

We are therefore inviting you to a consultation event on Monday 18th February between 12 and 2 at SFHA. The event will hear a talk by Professor Robertson on his draft report and the main recommendations.

Feedback and comments will be used to inform the final report which SFHA will then lobby political parties to adopt in their Scottish election manifesto.

Please note that places are limited to 1 person per organisation.
