I aim to respond as quickly as I can but sometimes I may want to take a little time to consider your question so as to give you the best possible answer.
The title deeds will generally say what properties are responsible for what. Typically the roof, outside walls and solum would be owned in common but that is not always the case and the title deeds should be checked. If the titles are silent then the Tenements (Scotland) Act applies and that says that outside walls are owned in common. That would mean that the costs are split 8 ways irrespective of where the damage is.
I hope this helped you today. Please do let me know if I can clarify anything. I am always happy to help. You are always welcome to ask a follow up question if it will help you further.
