Overview

Social housing providers face an ever-changing list of challenges driven by Government demands, new legislation and the economy. Currently, these range from targets for more and improved social housing to providing housing management services which meet rising customer expectations. Our team of lawyers have a true understanding of those challenges and will provide you with practical and clear advice, to overcome them.

We are a multi-disciplinary team, acting for a broad range of national and regional RPs, local authorities, private house-builders and funders on a wide range of issues affecting the sector.

We have particular strengths in development (including stock transfer) and its related discipline sectors: construction, planning and projects. Allied to this, we can call on our well-established plot sales function to support RP development teams - this is particularly important as the range of home ownership products increases and for those RPs who employ private sales to cross-subsidise schemes. We have a wealth of experience in housing management issues, particularly in relation to nuisance and anti-social behaviour. In addition, we have skilled advisers covering your core business needs such as employment law and funding.
