About this Webinar
In this webinar we look at what factors do – or don’t do. We talk with David Reid of James Gibb Property Managers about their responsibility for your money, how they choose and supervise contractors and whether they like owners to set up owners associations.

We start by picking up on common insurance issues with a broker who deals with these policies every day. Why is it so expensive? How do factors earn their insurance commission? Why do insurance valuations vary even within a street and should you have a block policy or let each owner arrange their own common insurance?

    Annie Flint
    Annie Flint became interested in tenement management when she had some interesting experiences during communal block repairs. She subsequently wrote "The Tenement Handbook" with her co-author John Gilbert. After many further adventures in all things tenemental, and when the Tenement Handbook became sadly dated, Annie and John set up the website www.underoneroof.scot that took the Handbook online. Under One Roof has been widely praised, even being mentioned favourably in the Scottish Parliament.
