From Building networks
Starting out in the profession of property / facilities management can be both exciting and daunting. Apart from the economics there is a lot of compliance to keep on top of. I am often contacted by graduates and new comers seeking advice and courses in building law.
The first thing I recommend is to purchase this wee book for facilies and property managers. This will give you a solid overview of all the requirements.

So, welcome to the New Year.
So I have been going with the holiday flow and it’s been a great tonic. I am usually the one who pushes or pulls to get something done. But a very wise person encouraged me to go with the flow and so I am trying something new. It’s required a bit of retraining on my part but it’s been worth it. So now my challenge is to hold onto that flow feeling whilst back in the thick of my work life☺
I have spoken with a lot of property managers who are being ripped offand mucked around by the building industry.
They are told by tradespeople “no, you don’t need a building consent to do this work”, only to find out later that they did. Or.. they were told to upgrade their building unnecessarily.
Then the trouble starts with Council.
