Social Housing

Whatever your affordable housing development requirements, we really can cover every element of the process, from the moment you make an offer, through the planning, construction and development phases, and to completion, and if selling is your ultimate aim, we can cover that too.

What we can do for you

With many years of experience in the sector, we have dedicated lawyers with specific expertise who understand the challenges of all types of development and regeneration projects. Our work ranges from site acquisitions through to disposal and also comprises strategic advice on planning matters, advice on commercial contracts and employment issues, and company formation.

From acquisition to disposal

From initial site assessments covering planning and title matters through to our integrated post-completion and plot sales services, when we say we can run a site entirely from acquisition to disposal, we really mean it. That means we cover:

  • Site acquisitions including Section 106 sites, rural exception and market sale; by golden brick or turn-key arrangements as required
  • Options, conditional contracts and joint venture agreements
  • Development Agreements
  • Funding and overage
  • Leases and licences
  • General site assembly arrangements
  • Shared ownership and market sales
  • Infrastructure agreements
  • Construction advice
  • Planning advice

Working in partnership with you

We truly believe in working in partnership with our clients, and we tailor our service to your individual needs. We offer legal updates in the form of workshop sessions to groups or to individual clients which can be designed to the specific operational needs of your organisation and your own internal processes and procedures…and we’re happy to learn from you too! We’ve held interactive workshop sessions with some clients where they’ve trained us on elements of their business which has helped us develop a deeper understanding of their businesses and processes.

Our bi-annual housing conference keeps our clients up to date with sector trends, and offers a forum in which you can share ideas and best practice with each other.

Our team continues to go from strength to strength. Our clients include Stonewater, Watford Community Housing Trust, Cottsway Housing Association and the Grand Union Housing Group.

We’re also proud to have been shortlisted in the 2017 National Housing Awards in the “best supplier to the sector” category. To find out more, please contact Lucy Jones
