Just launched, www.underoneroof.scot is a new free information website designed to help Scotland’s half million or so private tenement owners – and other property professionals, such as property managers, architects and surveyors, community organisations and advice workers - realise their rights and responsibilities and arm them with the information they need to understand quotations from trades providers and ensure they receive good value for money for work carried out on their property.
Written by housing consultant Annie Flint and conservation architect John Gilbert (co-authors of The Tenement Handbook, published in 1994) the website is produced by the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland (RIAS) as part of the Scottish Government’s Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design.
Tenements form over a quarter of the housing stock in Scotland and while most are traditional sandstone residential blocks, contrary to popular conception, houses that have been divided into flats, modern high-rise apartments and four-in-a-block houses also fall within the definition. And all of these come under the Tenements (Scotland) Act 2004.
