Routine maintenance will ensure that problems are identified and dealt with quickly and cheaply. You or your neighbours should have your building inspected at least once a year. See our advice on how to do this yourselves.
You can hire someone like a surveyor or building contractor to carry out checks.
You may have a factor for your building who will carry out routine inspections and maintenance work. If you have found any problems yourself, you should tell your factor as soon as possible.
Check if your building has a factor on the Scottish Property Factors Register website.
If you have concerns about a factor, read the code of conduct and complaints on the Advice Guide website.
