Development of affordable housing


Building homes for people to live in, is core to the affordable housing sector. It's something we as a firm are passionate about helping to facilitate. From package acquisitions, land led opportunities, to joint ventures, regeneration and construction contracts, we have a committed, knowledgeable and driven team to help you.

We can help you with all aspects of the development cycle; from heads of terms for new opportunities, through due diligence, and contract negotiation, to completion and, if relevant, the sale or letting of units.

The scale and scope of development activity undertaken by housing providers has grown hugely over the last 25 years and for many, now includes the delivery of other tenures, including private sale, built to rent, care and retirement living, alongside social and affordable rent and home ownership options. This diversification presents new challenges, and providers need legal advisers who can help you tackle those challenges and rise to the opportunities. Whilst we are experts in affordable housing, we also have a strong, broader real estate practice, and can use that wider market intelligence and knowledge to help you.

Our large national team is well equipped to help you deliver on your organisation's development programme. Our development teams cross all of our UK offices, working to deliver an efficient service for our clients, but with insight into local markets and regional trends.

For complex matters, we are able to bring together advice from a number of disciplines, including property, construction, planning, regulatory, governance and finance, which, when combined with strong project management, helps us to deliver transactions in line with your requirements. Our specialists can bring together the various work streams with commercial oversight, rooted in deep sector knowledge. For more routine transactions, our experience and market knowledge means we can provide an effective and focussed service, drawing on our experience.

Our lawyers are committed to working with your development teams to provide pragmatic and clear advice, with suggestions of possible commercial solutions, on which you can make informed decisions about projects. Importantly we provide dedicated client teams who will prioritise your work and who will be delighted to work with you as part of your wider team.
