Social Housing Litigation

Many social housing providers come to us as they recognise we are specialists at resolving disputes before they reach litigation. However, when court proceedings are required we vigorously act on our clients’ behalf to obtain the best, most cost effective result possible.


Our experience includes:

Advising on all tenure types

Claims brought by tenants and visitors who allege personal injury and damage to property

Dealing with legal proceedings for rent and service charge disputes

Defending in disrepair claims brought by tenants

Human Rights, the Equalities Act 2010 and the tenant’s rights of succession, assignment, mutual exchange and sub-letting and how this affects you

Making applications to and going before the First-tier tribunal concerning service charge arrears and breach of lease conditions

Regulate the behaviour of certain tenants

Undertaking homelessness decision reviews

We work with your property and development lawyers to ensure that you receive a full and thorough service. We take time to have a genuine understanding of your housing stock which will help minimise the risk of court disputes.
