Well-managed housing has a tremendous impact on communities and people’s lives. Our job is to give practical, actionable advice that helps providers give their clients a great service.
Keeping you one step ahead
We offer a unique set of services to clients including our dedicated 24/7 free helpline service and a specialist In-House Counsel for housing management issues. Alongside these, our dedicated advisory team brings a fresh perspective by looking at your processes from an insider’s perspective on issues such as safeguarding, hoarding, anti-social behaviour and tenancy fraud.

We're leading the way, as the largest health firm and one of the leading housing firms in the country. We've provided expert advice to clients following the publication of the Naylor Review. Put simply, we are the ‘go-to’ firm regarding the interface between health and housing.

Our bespoke training sessions and regular seminar series keep our clients informed on topical issues. We consult with national bodies such as the Chartered Institute of Housing and National Housing Federation to provide thought leadership for the sector.

Key areas we help housing associations with include:

  • Commercial and finance

    We advise on all kinds of corporate commercial contracts and arrangements for Registered Providers. Our securitisation team regularly works on stock rationalisation projects and portfolio management. From a commercial perspective we provide governance and contractual advice.

  • Housing development and regeneration

    We help our clients secure sites in a highly competitive market, work with them to secure funding and make sure that they have good governance in place to see the projects through. We smooth the way for organisations to merge and or create joint venture partnerships that allow developments to happen.

    We understand the impact welfare reforms and cuts have had on housing associations’ ability to invest. Where resources are stretched, we provide pragmatic answers that represent real value on all areas of tenancy and leasehold management.
