Tenement Law - Compulsory Owners Associations
Online Webinar

Event Finished


Fri, 21 Jun from
10:00 to 11:30 (BST)


Online Webinar,



SFHA is an organisational member of a Scottish Parliament Working Group on Tenement Maintenance, which was convened in March 2018 to explore what actions could be taken to improve the condition of Scotland’s tenements. One of the Working Group’s recommendations was that every tenement building should have an owners’ association to coordinate work to the building. This recommendation as referred to the Scottish Law Commission to implement the recommendation, and the commission recently published a Discussion Paper on implementation for public/stakeholder consultation.

SFHA is hosting a webinar on the recently published recommendations for implementation on Friday, June 21st 10am-1130am to discuss potential implications for our members.

The Scottish Law Commission will be in attendance to provide an overview of the relevant parts of the proposal, followed by facilitated discussion and Q&A. The event is for all members with an interest in tenement maintenance/ repair and management, including members of our Building Safety & Maintenance Forum and Factoring forum, but all are welcome. Please bring your questions for the experts.

This member webinar aims to:

  • Make members aware of the recommendations included in the SLC’s report, which, if implemented, will result in law
  • Understand how these compulsory owners’ associations requirements and duties may interact with RSLs’ professional activities
  • Collect input from members to inform SFHA’s consultation response, which will provide feedback on the recommendations
  • Help coordinate members own response to the Discussion Paper, if relevant
  • Answer any questions members have for the Scottish Law Commission on the proposals for implementation of compulsory tenement owners associations

The Discussion Paper considers the functions and powers of the owners’ association, how decisions will be made and challenged, costs liability, exemptions, and more. The Scottish Law Commission will provide a summary and SFHA will collect input on a subset of the Commission’s consultation questions to inform our response ahead of the August 1st deadline.

If you have questions or would like to raise anything in the Discussion Paper’s proposals in advance of the event, please contact Annabel Pidgeon, SFHA Policy Lead at apidgeon@sfha.co.uk. Thank you.

The Discussion Paper is available on the SLC’s website. An executive summary is also available. SFHA will update attendees with any additional event discussion guides ahead of the webinar.
