Housing

They come up with a bespoke solution for every problem ... I've never come across someone who hasn't been bowled over by what they do.
Chambers UK 2013

Housing is top of the political agenda with the continued annual shortfall in new homes built across the private and social housing sectors. We understand this political climate and the associated risks, working with our clients to get developments off the ground, built and in use, with the minimum fuss.

Our specialist team advises clients with interests in all types of housing. We work with national house builders on major private housing developments. We also work with custom builders and those developing private rented dwellings. 

We deliver high quality, bespoke advice to an impressive client base of registered providers and local authorities. We're also known for our experience supporting developers with unique requirements such as care homes and student accommodation providers. 

The team is supported by a fully integrated plot sales service, with specialist experience dealing with FirstBuy and Help to Buy schemes from a range of clients. 

We cater for every legal service that the housing sector requires in all UK jurisdictions including acquiring and disposing of land and dwellings, obtaining planning permission for housing developments large and small, housing litigation, housing regulation, construction contracts and disputes, financial services regulation, tax, joint ventures and corporate structures. We also help clients with their day-to-day legal needs in areas such as employment.

Clients tell us that they like our commercial, outcome focussed approach, whether we're dealing with the sale of one plot or a development agreement for the regeneration of an existing housing estate. We're diligent in identifying the risks and focused on presenting information in a clear way with practical solutions.
