The Property Factors Register was established as a result of the implementation of the Property Factors (Scotland) Act 2011. The Act aims to set minimum standards of practice for the residential property and land management industry and to provide increased protection for homeowners who use the services of a property factor. The Property Factors Register is compulsory for residential property and land managers whether they are private sector businesses, local authorities or housing associations operating in Scotland.
Once the register is in force from 1 October 2012, it will be an offence to operate as a property factor without being registered.
After 1 October 2012, the public will be able to use this site to search for registered property factors and/or property and land that is maintained by a registered property factor on behalf of homeowners.
