We advise affordable housing providers and organisations involved in the delivery of affordable housing on all their legal needs.
We work with housing association providers which range in size from those with a few hundred houses to those with in excess of 50,000. We also help local authorities on strategic housing and grant funding matters, and act for private developers on their negotiations on affordable housing sites. This includes innovative structures to cash-flow developments for registered providers.
Our specialist team deals with real estate acquisition and development work as well as major regeneration projects. We advise across the full range of legal issues affecting the industry including construction, corporate, planning and procurement. We provide advice on finance facilities for registered providers, acting for both lenders and borrowers, and also corporate and employment advice on matters such as stock rationalisations and mergers.
Our approach is to provide a complete understanding of all the parties involved, and what their drivers and objectives are on the project to help our clients achieve their objectives. We are known for being approachable and pragmatic, with an ability to deliver legal advice in plain English.
