The SFHA is holding another series of legal training which will be presented by TC Young.
The next session in the series is ‘Factoring – the Act, the Code and the Tribunal’.
The session will consider the duties which apply to housing associations in terms of the Property Factors (Scotland) Act 2011 and the Code of Conduct which has been issued under that legislation.
Delegates will get the chance to consider the terms of the code itself and look at the way the First Tier Tribunal (Housing and Property Chamber) enforces compliance with the code. Reference will be made to actual decisions of the tribunal to illustrate areas where problems regularly occur.
The session will be led by Jim Bauld who sits as a legal member of the First Tier Tribunal and who has adjudicated on numerous applications involving complaints against factors.
The training session will take place on Tuesday 19 February at the SFHA office in Glasgow.
Refreshments will be available from 9.30am, with the training commencing at 10am and concluding at 12.30pm.
