Annex B, sub section iv., reports on property factor applications during the twelve-month period covered by the report. There were 185 property factor applications, representing only 4% of all applications received. Most applications focused on concerns over both communication & consultation and carrying out repairs & maintenance. Of the 185 applications received, 16 were rejected, 37 withdrawn with most of these cases being resolved and 108 applications decided by the tribunal. The tribunal found that on 32 occasions the property factor had fulfilled their obligations to the Code of Conduct or their property factor duties. The tribunal found that there had been a failure to comply with the Code of Conduct or property factoring duties in 47 cases. The remaining 29 cases were dismissed.

The report identifies a decrease in cases compared to the number of applications received during the previous year with 5 of our homeowner customers having had their applications accepted. Of these 5 applications, the tribunal found that in all cases there had been no failure to comply with the Code of Conduct or our factoring duties.
