What is the Property Factor Register?

The Property Factors Register was established under the Property Factors (Scotland) Act 2011 which came into force on 1 October 2012.

The Act defines the meaning of property factor and it is a criminal offence to operate as a property factor whilst unregistered and without reasonable excuse.


The register lets you search online to find out:

  • who the property factor is for a certain property address or area of land
  • the contact details of a certain property factor
  • the number of properties a property factor manages at the point of registration

Property factors are responsible for making sure that the information on the register is accurate within the requirements of the Act.

Changes to the information held on the register and other related matters are published in the register News section.


General enquires about this register can be directed to propertyfactorregister@gov.scot
