Housing litigation

 

The housing sector continues to be subject to radical change, particularly social housing. The increasing financial stresses created by welfare reform and the pressure to deliver new affordable homes all the while demonstrating value for money, is shaping the way in which social housing providers operate.

We have extensive experience in the social housing sector and our dedicated team offers practical support and advice to help clients overcome these challenges, achieve their strategic objectives and explore new opportunities.

As well as continuing to develop and deliver new homes whilst regenerating existing neighbourhoods and cities, providers must continue to ensure that communities and homes remain safe; where people want to live and can be proud of.

We have a proven track record in advising the housing sector, working with housing associations, local authorities, charities and not-for-profit organisations as well as private landlords and developers. Our experience is complimented by in-depth risk and insurance knowledge, as we also continue to provide sector focused legal services to insurers, brokers and their customers.

Our recent growth through the addition of an outstanding commercial advisory team in 2017 has enabled us to enhance our service offering to the social housing sector, with strength and expertise in the following areas:

Housing Management
•Development
Corporate, Financial and Commercial
Employment
Health & Safety/Regulatory
Dispute Resolution
•Risk & Insurance
Data Protection & Privacy
Construction & Engineering

Whatever your requirements, we will deliver clear, concise and practical legal advice. Our emphasis is on forging strong, sustainable partnerships by taking the time to understand your operations, priorities and strategic objectives and drawing upon the best legal skills to achieve them.

Testimonials


I hold BLM in the highest regard. They are the third solicitors I have dealt with in relation to disrepair cases. Their service is exceptional, and based on current performance I would not move away from them.

The team at BLM are second to none when it comes to client commitment and overall case preparation, management and progression. All of the individuals I have dealt with have been very professional, knowledgeable and helpful. They are very good at explaining any legal jargon so myself and colleagues fully understand each case.
