WS Property Management
WS Property Management opened it's doors for business on 1st April 2012.
Factoring and the Housing Association
When Whiteinch & Scotstoun Housing Association began refurbishing the houses in its area over 40 years there was a clearly identified need to take on the responsibilities of factor for those private home owners and shop owners in the tenement blocks being refurbished, to ensure the buildings were kept to the best possible standard. As the Association grew it continued in the factoring business, however in 2011, when the transfer of stock from Glasgow Housing Association was imminent, a business review identified that the Association's factoring business would likely increase, post transfer, to beyond that which can be operated within a charity. A trading subsidiary was therefore needed and so WS Property Management was born.
We are registered with the Scottish Government to deliver a factoring service and our registration number is PF000097.
Where we operate
We factor properties primarily in our area of operation which is the Dumbarton Road Corridor, from the Clyde Tunnel to Harland Street, although we do have one or two propetrites outwith. We currently factor 507 residential properties, 95 commercials (shops), 1 workshop and 1 office.
