Issues such as funding and meeting the rising demand for affordable housing are high on the political agenda. Against this backdrop, clients need legal advisers with a passion to deliver solutions.
This is exactly what our social housing experts provide. Our strong track record in the sector means that we can provide the full range of services required - providing trusted advice on issues ranging from property development, finance and governance, through to contentious and non-contentious housing management - demonstrated by the fact that we are the primary, full service legal adviser to Sanctuary Group, the largest registered provider of social housing in the country.
We have advised Sanctuary on a £150 million secured bond tap issue, which contributes to the organisation's £750 million national development programme. The largest of its kind, the programme will deliver more than 5,000 new affordable homes across the UK by 2015.
