Social Housing

Our social housing specialists are on hand to provide advice and support to registered providers in the private and public sectors.  We can advise and assist with a range of transactions including development (be it golden brick, turnkey or land-led schemes and associated infrastructure agreements), collective enfranchisement, lease extensions, right to buy, plot sales, and funding and security (charging). 

Our specialist social housing team understands the unique challenges facing housing providers in today’s challenging climate and can support you and your officers across a number of areas.


Whether you are acquiring section 106 units from a developer via the “golden brick” or turnkey route or looking at more traditional land-led structures, we can help.  Our team members have a wealth of experience in acting for RPs and can advise on how to best structure a transaction, the development documentation, and any associated work such as s106 agreements and infrastructure agreements.

Site set up / Plot Sales

We have a dedicated plot sales team and can assist with both shared ownership and open market plot sales. We understand the importance of a comprehensive legal pack to minimise enquires from purchasers’ solicitors and will work with your officers to ensure this is available at the point of sale.

Funding and Security (Charging)

Our dedicated funding and security team will work thoroughly and efficiently to satisfy the requirements of both your lender and your executive board at any scale of the funding transaction.

Leasehold/Right to Buy

Whether it is lease extensions, collective enfranchisement, Right to Buy, or any other high-volume transactions, we have the expertise and resource to assist.  We can also offer training sessions to your in-house teams on matters such as statutory lease extensions pursuant to the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 where time is of the essence and delays can prove costly.
