IN RESPONSE TO THE TERMINATION OF EDINBURGH COUNCIL’S STATUTORY NOTICE SYSTEM, GLM LAUNCH NEW SHARED REPAIRS SERVICE
Edinburgh Council recently took the decision to withdraw the Statutory Notice system and close down their Property Conservation department. With it went tenemental home owners (common owners) easy option for having maintenance and repair works carried out on their buildings. Now the risk of disrepair, neglect, loss of value and neighbourly disputes looms large.
In order to try to avoid this chaos, we have launched GLM Shared Repairs™. This service brings GLM’s expertise and experience of working on some of the city’s most prominent historic buildings and with owners who chose not to go down the Statutory Notice route, to a much wider audience. Our three stage service provides a framework for common owners to work together to deal with their joint responsibilities and protect their investments.
Stage One: Our building survey will identify options for the repair and maintenance of the building and assist the owners to agree a strategy.
Stage Two: We will specify, procure and manage the repair and maintenance works and certify them on satisfactory completion.
Stage Three: We will offer an annual inspection which together with the original report and the certificates issued on completion of any necessary works, will build up into a ‘Service Record’ for the building much like an MOT.
