Providers of registered social housing need to look at innovative ways of achieving maximum value from their properties whilst keeping running costs to a minimum. Sharpe Pritchard’s solicitors support housing providers from project inception through planning and construction and with partnership arrangements, operational contracts and outsourcing.
Our dedicated lawyers understand these challenges and provide practical solutions to meet strategic housing objectives.
Our services include:
Our solicitors have developed a bespoke contract for social landlords that combines hard contractor obligations, which have been tested and interpreted by the courts, with a strategic partnering approach. This ensures that registered providers do not have to sacrifice legal certainty whilst still re-defining their relationship with contractors into one of partnership.
