Stock retention and new build options

Stock retention and new build options

The largest team of dedicated housing experts in the country delivering value for money through innovation and quality advice that is pragmatic, reliable and consistent

Local authorities still own and manage a very significant proportion of social housing in England. We understand the challenges faced by these retention authorities of meeting the decent homes standard (and beyond) on the one hand and the sustaining their housing revenue account on the other.

We offer advice on

  • efficient procurement and partnering
  • housing finance reform
  • partial housing transfer schemes
  • PFI schemes
  • regeneration projects

In addition, and as housing has risen up the political agenda, local housing authorities, once again, can build or facilitate the construction of significant amounts of new affordable housing.

For local authorities who may be considering the development of new affordable housing we offer advice on

  • local housing companies
  • prudential borrowing
  • housing finance reform
  • special purpose vehicles
  • joint venture structures
  • PFI schemes
  • strategic procurement issues

Our current portfolio of work includes advice on a wide range of council housing company models of various builds.
