Factoring: Questions & Answers

This is a refundable deposit which is requested on the purchase or handover of a development. It is used to help balance the development account until invoicing begins. If you sell your property the factor float will be refunded within a final bill less any monies owed.
A deed of conditions is a legal document which forms part of the title deeds to a building or a group of buildings, and which lays down the detailed rights, duties, and obligations of every owner within the building in relation to the common areas. It identifies the common areas and provides arrangements for the management and repair of the property, the division of costs between owners and procedures to resolve disputes.

Emergencies can happen day or night. As a result we have developed a 24 hour response service designed to be a first port of call for emergencies that occur when our office is closed. This service has proved to be a big success among our clients. The contact number for this service is 01355 207088
When buying a property in a development with communal areas your solicitor should notify you of your responsibilities. Owners are jointly liable with all the other properties with regards to communal charges.
Invoices are produced inline with the Deed of Conditions. This usually states invoices to be sent quarterly, bi-annually or yearly.
You can pay your factoring fees in a number of ways:

By Cheque
By Bank Transfer (Internet banking)
By debit or credit card over the phone
By cash either at you local bank or in our office

We also encourage owners to setup a Standing Order. This leads to a regular stream of income into the development account for essential repairs and maintenance. It also eliminates a larger bill at the end of the period. An online payment facility will shortly be available, however you can obtain a standing order form here.

The Block Buildings Insurance covers all fixtures and fittings within the building and the structure of the building. It is important to note that individual policies do not cover communal areas so it is essential that you ensure your problem is covered under the communal buildings policy.

You can contact our property managers regarding Insurance but we recommend approaching our Broker at One Soution – 0141 204 5432

Our property managers regularly visit our developments. The number of visits depends on various factors including the package of services offered to the development.
Our property mangers will put out to tender all maintenance and services to attain the best deal for the development. We always aim to provide the best service at the most affordable price.
Here at Be-Factored we believe in giving our clients every opportunity to tell us what they need with regards to communal services. Not all developments are the same so we aim to meet the tailored needs of each of our developments.
It’s the length of time in which the factor and owners have to report and get the builders to carry out ‘snagging’ or any defects in a new build. It is normally either 1 or 2 years from sale of last property.
