Social Housing

Social Housing

The social housing sector continues to evolve and diversify, and Registered Social Landlords face a wide range of demands and challenges.

Our in-depth knowledge of the social housing sector has been gained from years of experience in advising housing associations on all aspects of their business.  As a result, our clients benefit from the collective skills which a multi-disciplined team dedicated to meeting their needs provides. As one of only a few firms in Scotland with a dedicated social housing team, we are well placed to service the wider needs of this sector.

We understand that putting people at the heart of the services they provide is paramount to our Registered Social Landlord clients. We advise on:

  • Governance and compliance
  • Subsidiaries and related organisations
  • Partnering and joint ventures
  • Land acquisition and development
  • Construction and procurement
  • Loans, refinancing and alternative funding
  • Shared ownership, shared equity and mortgage to rent
  • Employment
  • Housing management and factoring
  • Debt collection
  • Tenancy issues
