Social Housing

We help affordable housing providers to find sensible solutions to legal issues.

Our Social Housing team is made up lawyers from across our business, providing a full variety of services including Commercial Property, Construction, Banking and Finance, Litigation, Employment, and Corporate & Commercial. We’ll give you straight-forward and cost-effective advice on all your legal issues—from transaction handling, to dispute resolution, or emerging policies.

We also advise on governance and Public & Regulatory Law, to make sure your organisation runs smoothly, and our sister training consultancy, Capital People, can help with HR, employment law, and health & safety. The recent appointment of Jonathan Huish (formerly of Trivallis) as Chief Executive of Capital People, has also strengthened our collaborative team.

We’ve supported some of the most prominent organisations in Wales, including Valleys to Coast Housing Limited, Bron Afon Community Housing Ltd, Cardiff Community Housing Association, Pobl Group and Hendre Limited.

As a member of the representative body for housing associations in Wales, Community Housing Cymru, we also regularly deliver training and briefings to their members.

We can help you with:

  • Sensitive and general employment matters: we act for numerous clients as their sole advisors on disciplinary and grievance investigations, discrimination issues, gender pay gap reporting and HR services
  • Development work: we’ve worked on a variety of project such as site acquisition and construction projects and renewable energy advice associations looking to modernise and reduce carbon ratings of their properties
  • Estate management services
  • Landlord and tenant advice, as well as leasehold advice
  • Reorganisation structures, joint-ventures, acquisitions and disposals
