Unhappy with your current property Factor? Here’s how simple it is to change

If you’re unhappy with your current property factor, it’s worth considering a change. It’s very straightforward to appoint James Gibb as your Factor and we’d be happy to guide you through the process.

Are you looking to change your factor?

Is  your current property factor not meeting expectations? Or maybe you think your communal charges  are too high? It’s not as difficult as you may believe to change, and at James Gibb we can provide a great value factoring  service that will exceed your expectations.

A change of Factor can be easily arranged if there’s sufficient support to do so from fellow owners, and as long as the requirements of your Deed of Conditions are met. We can advise here, as required, and offer a professionally tailored “management proposal” to co-owners, Owners Committee’s etc.

A significant number of homeowners think  that changing their factor could be “more bother than it’s worth”. At James Gibb, we firmly believe this not to be the case. We can guide you through the process. The steps below explain how easy it can be to change your factor, and James Gibb can offer a professional and efficient service to manage it all from start to finish.

  • Firstly, we can assist with checking your Deed of Conditions. This may contain rules on how to appoint a factor and/or replace your current factor, and any conditions that need to be met during the process. For example, the number of owners who need to be in agreement to enable the change go ahead.
  • Once we have established the rules in your Deed of Conditions, we may be required to call a meeting with owners. James Gibb can help to facilitate this.
  • Where applicable, contact should be made with your  existing factor. James Gibb can assist with the communication to ensure it’s clear and abides by the rules in your Deed of Conditions and your existing factoring Terms of Service.

James Gibb can manage each step of the above process, and make changing your property factor hassle free for you and your co-owners.
