Elliott Duffy Garrett has a proven track record in relation to Housing Law. For many years, we have been to the forefront in the housing sector, advising and assisting housing associations on the challenging process of mergers. We draw on the expertise of a multi disciplinary team to provide advice in relation to the myriad of issues which arise in this sector, for example on corporate governance including DfC inspections, statutory and regulatory compliance and development funding including bank and THFC loans.
Our expert property lawyers guide housing associations in relation to all aspects of property acquisition, including right to buy transactions under statutory schemes and the acquisition of “off the shelf” developments. We also regularly advise and represent housing associations in relation to breaches of tenancy, rent recovery, unlawful occupation, recovery of possession and succession claims and anti-social behaviour, including issue of emergency injunction proceedings.
Our expertise in the sector is recognised by our consistent rankings in Chambers UK.
