Forbes is independently recognised as market-leading lawyers to the housing sector. Acting for over 100 registered providers our clients range from individual housing associations to groups with over 70,000 properties with an often complex range of legal requirements.

Our specialism, partnership approach, "one-stop-shop" service, size of our team, quality of our lawyers and value for money approach is what differentiates us from our competitors.

The housing group comprises four main areas of expertise:

  • Development, regeneration and home ownership
  • Housing management and tenancy enforcement
  • Corporate, governance and procurement
  • Employment and HR

Our team is one of the largest in the country. The department presents a comprehensive range of disciplines, designed to meet the full spectrum of RP client needs.

We understand the housing sector and current issues facing registered providers and ALMOs which include the growing need for good quality affordable housing in safe communities against a backdrop of reduced funding, regulatory changes, welfare reform and the requirement for value for money.

We offer a cradle to grave service and boast for example a talented group of advocates which enable cases to be dealt with seamlessly within the team meaning that our clients do not need to outsource. The unique set of specialisms and the depth of our experience enables our clients to adopt an immediate confidence in us.
