Owners who are part of the block building insurance scheme should note that there will be a slight delay this year in receiving your annual payment request invoice. Invoices which would normally be issued to owners on or around 1st April have been slightly delayed and will now be issued between mid-end of April. I can confirm that your building insurance cover remains in place as normal and that there is no lapse in policy.
When you buy a property from West Dunbartonshire Council within a tenement, a four-in-a-block, maisonette or high flat you also buy a share of the maintenance, repair and upkeep towards the common areas of the building. These common areas can include the roof, outside walls, common entrances, lifts, stairs and any common paths and/or drying areas.
Your title deed will set out the common areas of the building, paths and drying areas for which you have a shared responsibility, what share of the maintenance you pay, how decisions should be reached with regard to maintenance and repair and the appointment of a factor.
You can contact the Sold Property Sections with any questions.
