Social Housing

Our team has a particular interest and specialism in social housing litigation and act for a number of leading registered providers of social housing across the North of England. 


The social housing sector has its own specific requirements and considerations, and our team enjoys getting to know our clients and understanding their particular requirements and ethos.  The approach taken when disputes arise is often very different to a purely commercial entity and our team is sensitive to that approach and committed to assisting in resolving such disputes, ideally before involving any Court.  If this is not possible, our team is well known amongst the regional Judiciary and presents cases in a thorough but straightforward manner, with an excellent record of achieving positive results for our clients, particularly in the area of anti-social behaviour.


The services that we can offer include the following:

  • Possession proceedings;
  • Demotion proceedings;
  • Part 1 ASB Injunctions;
  • Committal applications;
  • Succession advice;
  • Trespass proceedings; and
  • Shared Ownership disputes.


Our Team also works closely with our Commercial Property team who can assist with the non-contentious elements of social housing – from land acquisitions and “golden brick” purchases to all elements of the site set-up – having been heavily involved in all property related matters for our existing social housing clients for over 20 years.


We pride ourselves on providing a personal service to our clients, and adding value wherever possible.  We regularly provide guidance on cases being investigated before they are referred for formal legal action, and work closely with individuals within the social housing organisations to build strong relationships which operate seamlessly.
