Overview

With the increased profile of affordable housing on the political agenda, the lack of funding for housing associations is forcing them to review their business models and depressing activity levels. It is essential that available, financially viable projects or bank funding is delivered promptly and efficiently. Similarly, it has never been more important for housing associations that the sales of their properties are delivered without delay. We understand these pressures and remain committed to the sector and to providing a quality, value for money service.

Our clients also include private developers, local authorities, health providers and government agencies such as Homes England. This ‘cross sector’ experience benefits all our clients, particularly in an era of increased partnering and joint ventures, because we understand those with whom they work and can draw upon that knowledge and experience to find workable solutions and smooth the delivery of projects.

We have been advising the housing sector for more than 20 years, acting for registered providers, developers, local authorities and other public bodies across the UK.
