Social Housing

We advise affordable housing providers on all their legal requirements, from transaction handling and dispute resolution to advising on emerging legal and policy issues affecting the sector. We assist our clients with all social housing related regulatory, governance and operational issues.

We work with:

  • Registered social landlords
  • Charities
  • Supported living providers
  • Student accommodation developers and operators

Our dedicated social housing team provides a range of services to housing providers and those connected to the sector, from provision of strategic housing related advice and guidance on procurement related issues, to handling development projects, acquisitions and disposals.

The team is made up of social housing experts, and includes lawyers with specialist expertise in commercial property, construction, employment, disputes, corporate and commercial legal practice. This gives a depth and breadth to services we can provide to the sector.

Capital People Consultants, our consultancy and training business, gives us a unique dimension. We’re lawyers, working hand in hand with HR advisors, trainers, health & safety experts, fire risk consultants and occupational health practitioner – so we offer a completely integrated service.
