The political agenda recognises that housing forms the foundation for health, social care and criminal justice policies. Challenges such as the Scottish Housing Quality Standards and welfare reform ensure that housing is at the centre of an ever changing environment for our Registered Social Landlords (RSLs) and local authority clients.

We have a specialist and dedicated Social Housing Team which can meet all the needs of the ever more sophisticated RSLs or local authority as a “one-stop-shop”. As part of a law firm with a wide range of experts across all fields, working with our team brings all the benefit of a smaller niche legal practice whilst being able to call on specialists from other areas to provide clients with quick, and specific advice.

We have a wealth of experience in our housing practice which covers both the public and private sectors. Our Housing Team consists of dedicated specialists who meet all the legal needs of our clients in the sector including traditional core property work and housing management advice. We understand that housing associations and local authorities are developing their roles and require advice to meet new and innovative challenges. We support our clients by providing high quality legal advice together with workable and practical solutions at all times.
