We can help you with:

  • major property acquisitions and development work;

  • landlord and tenant matters;
  • corporate and company secretarial support;
  • loan facility agreements and charging of housing stock;
  • construction issues;
  • debt recovery;
  • employment matters.

We also have a specialised niche practice providing housing management and leasehold management to Registered Providers of social housing (RP’s), local authorities, management companies, managing agents, Right to Manage Companies (RTM’s), Residents Management Companies (RMC’s) and private sector landlords.

Our dedicated Social Housing team can also assist with all aspects of housing management litigation. We understand the sector and the everyday challenges faced by housing professionals, which is why we will always explore pragmatic solutions with you to avoid extensive litigation. We work closely with our dispute resolution team to offer alternative dispute resolution (ADR) such as mediation, which is a flexible process and can therefore be used before or during court proceedings.

  • accelerated possession proceedings

  • boundary and rights of way disputes
  • disrepair and dilapidation claims
  • evictions
