We offer expertise and experience in both traditional and developing areas of social housing, including:

  • Possession Proceedings (including Art. 8 proportionality claims)
  • Disrepair
  • Rent & Service Charge Disputes
  • Right to Buy
  • Succession
  • Planning & Environment
  • Construction & Development
  • Contract & Finance
  • Unlawful Eviction
  • Homelessness Appeals
  • Allocations
  • Anti-Social Behaviour
  • Employment
  • Discrimination
  • HMOs

Members of the team regularly act for and advise social housing stock-holders, developers, landlords (including private, local authority, ALMO & RP landlords), charities and trusts. We act in all courts and tribunals, including magistrates’ courts and the High Court. Drawing on our wealth of knowledge and experience across all our teams – not only in property litigation but also in construction, planning, commercial law, and employment – we can respond to the whole range of our clients’ needs with flexibility. Individual members also undertake publicly-funded and direct access work, as well as mediation (as mediators and advocates).

We pride ourselves on our high level of client service, and on making sure that our clients are involved and informed at all times.  We are recognised in the legal directories for our expertise and service to our clients:
