Housing Associations

Our housing association lawyers have extensive experience in the sector, and bring confidence, a practical understanding and an assured approach to every case.
We also work hard to find intuitive ways to deliver added value services that make a tangible difference.


We're proud of our long-standing commitment to the housing sector. We act for multiple housing associations and recognise the importance of delivering a quality service, fully understanding the sector's overall objectives, commitments and values.

Increasingly the housing sector needs to adopt and operate as a commercial entity, and we bring commercial solutions as well as practical advice on issues that really matter.

We act for both small and large housing associations, and ensure that every project undertaken is partner-led and assisted by a team of skilled solicitors who provide focused advice that is tailored to your needs.
