Who we are

We are the property factoring department of Govan Housing Association operating in the South Side of Glasgow, providing a professional and comprehensive property management service to approximately 700 owners.

The Association was founded in 1971 under the name of Central Govan Housing Association and was initially set up to carry out tenement rehabilitation of 212 flats in the then Taransay Street Treatment Area.

Since then, the Association has taken on the ownership and management of over 2,000 properties in the local area and delivered a number of award-winning new-build developments to assist with the continual development and regeneration of this proud and historic area.

In May 2017 the Association set up a subsidiary, Govan HOME Team C.I.C, to assist in the delivery of planned and cyclical maintenance, reactive repairs, estate management and landscaping programmes. The development of the Govan HOME Team subsidiary will enhance and compliment the factoring service provided by the Association.

Our knowledgeable and professional factoring team are on hand to assist homeowners in maintaining and preserving the condition and value of your property, as well as providing advice and guidance on all aspects of property factoring.

We are serious about turning our vision into reality and providing excellent quality homes that make a positive impact on people and communities. This focus really signals the future direction of the Govan Housing Association Group, one that is genuine about customer service, which is committed to ensuring that residents get the best possible deal, the highest quality homes, and most importantly ensures that we provide an exceptional service that puts our residents and the wider community central to everything that we do.

Our Vision

Govan Housing Association aims to be an innovative and responsive organisation, playing a leading role in the regeneration of Greater Govan, Ibrox and Cessnock, while continuing to improve the quality of life of our residents.

Through our factoring service we aspire to provide a factoring service responsive to the needs of our customers and improving communities, whilst managing your asset and protecting your investment.

We are committed to managing all factored units on behalf of our customers to the highest possible standard and ensuring value for money.
