Ask a Scots Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Thank you for your question. I am a solicitor in Scotland. From your narrative it would appear that this works project has been a bit of a shambles. Factors don't get a great reputation and this is why. I would say that there would have to be a bit more analysis of what the factors have done or not done to get this programme of works started and finished within reasonable time but if you can establish that they are negligent as a result of which you have suffered loss then you do have a stateable action to take against them. From what you have said here, I would say that you have on the face of it a reasonable case to take forward but your own solicitor should look at the paperwork before drafting an action. Happy to discuss further. I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that I am credited for my time.
Yes, your solicitor should write a letter narrating the issues and asking for proposal for compensation.
