  • Arranging Asset Valuations for all properties owned by the Council
  • Ensuring a correct assessment of all the Council-owned properties, lodging appeals and applications for "Empty Period Rates Relief"
  • Carrying out valuations of properties owned by the Council
  • Purchasing property for the Council
  • Selling Council properties and the appointment of external agents
  • Managing the leasing of properties owned by the Council and properties we lease from others
  • Carrying out valuations for new leases, rent reviews, renewals and surrender of leases etc
  • Negotiating access or "wayleaves" to outside parties who require to cross or use Council property or land, i.e. Scottish Water, BT, Scottish Gas, etc
  • Negotiating the disposal of small areas of amenity land and garden ground
  • Arranging the sale of properties
  • Granting licenses/concessions to operate in car parks and public areas, i.e. for Lammas Market or Kirkcaldy Links Market
