Home Ownership

Home Ownership


Owner-occupation is the most common tenure in Clackmannanshire with 62% of dwellings being privately owned. Private housing is available in all towns and villages in the area. Improved transport links and the new housing developments have made Clackmannanshire an attractive place for new residents.

Responsibilities as a home owner

When you buy a property you are responsible for carrying out repairs and maintenance to your home. Carrying out these repairs can often mean large extra costs that you may not have accounted for. You should always take future repairs and maintenance into account before buying a property. Housing legislation places a duty on Clackmannanshire Council to ensure that local housing is in reasonable condition and fit for people to live comfortably. For more information see Private Housing Assistance Scheme.


If you live in housing which includes commonly owned areas such as roofs, staircases, entrances and gardens you may be affected by the Property Factors (Scotland) Act 2011.
