Affordable housing

  


With rapidly evolving legislation, new ways of working and a growing number of businesses entering this important sector, it pays to be working alongside an adviser with well-established expertise, experience and the imagination to innovate.

Affordable housing is part of our firm's DNA and we’ve worked in the sector for over 50 years. The past 15 years have seen immense change; affordable housing has been catapulted up the social and political agenda, and our work has grown and broadened with it.

Housing associations and local authorities are still the bedrock of our client base and we have long and enduring relationships with some of the largest and most successful. A trusted advisor – as well as handling complex transactions and legislative issues, our knowledge and know-how means we can take a step back and act as a strategic partner and sounding board for busy clients in this frenetic sector.

For clients focused on buying and selling individual plots of land, buildings and schemes, we are a hands-on partner with the depth and reassurance of our entire firm’s resource at our fingertips. And for clients focused on large and high profile deals and projects, we offer the scale to get the job done, along with real on-the-ground experience and understanding.

Trusted to work on the most complex affordable housing issues, we have a deep experience of working with the regulator as well as an in-depth understanding of how the sector has evolved and the exciting future that lies ahead. As a firm we are renowned for our expertise in bringing public and private sectors together and helping our clients make the most of innovative partnership and joint venture opportunities.

We pride ourselves on our ability to understand your ideas and see how to build on them, bring them to life and maximise their potential. Passionate and approachable – we are ready to get things done. Expert and pragmatic we can advise you on the big picture and the long-term future of affordable housing.

Our experience includes working on the groundbreaking Meridian Water development.  We advised on the restructuring of Peabody – one of the UK’s most iconic housing associations. And we are helping to drive projects on Newcastle’s Byker Estate, London’s Barking Riverside, Plymouth’s North Prospect and Hyde Group's acquisition and redevelopment of 14 acres at Charlton Riverside.
