Property Factors (Scotland) Act 2011

Section 16 – Naming of panel and re-naming of committees

64.Section 16 is similar to section 21 of the Housing (Scotland) Act 2006, which deals with the private rented housing panel. Schedule 4 to the Rent (Scotland) Act 1984 requires there to be a panel of people to act as chairmen and members of rent assessment committees. Section 16(1) provides that the panel will have additional functions that are conferred on them by this Act. Section 16(2) names that panel the “homeowner housing panel” and the committees the “homeowner housing committees” in relation to all applications made under Part 2 of this Act (that is, applications from homeowners in relation to an alleged failure by property factors to carry out the property factor’s duties or to ensure compliance with the property factor code of conduct (see section 14)).
