Legal specialists for social housing providers

If you’re a registered social landlord or run a housing co-operative, you’ll know that strong and thorough legal advice is the key to managing tenancies. So you’ll need advisers who understand the complex legal environment of social housing inside out, and who can help you set up a management system that works for you and all your tenants. All our advice is geared towards helping you manage your property effectively and efficiently, so you can provide the sort of service that keeps your tenants happy.

Landlord and tenant legal issues

Whether you have hundreds of properties or just the one, we have the skills and experience you need. We deal with landlord and tenant issues everyday, so we know exactly what sort of issues you face. We also have specialist legal teams to help with related matters such as tax and employment.

Tenancy agreements

We find that properly drafted tenancy agreements are the best starting point for good property management. You’ll also need strong procedures for dealing with any issues that may crop up including:

  • carrying out repairs
  • supporting tenants
  • claiming outstanding rent
  • taking possession.

Disputes with tenants

Occasionally, you will have to handle disputes with tenants. We can help you take legal action to resolve the situation. The sort of issues we can advise you on are:

  • possession orders
  • injunctions for antisocial behaviour
  • breaches of tenancy terms
  • unauthorised occupants.
