Essential Residential Hub

Issues affecting residential property and the housing market are under greater scrutiny than ever before.

Over the past few years, the Government and the Law Commission have embarked on an extensive and wide-ranging programme of reforms to tackle perceived inequities in the housing market, launching a range of consultations and new legislation.

We understand that any changes to the legal framework affecting the development, ownership and management of assets in the residential sector will be of critical importance to your business. We are here to assist you in managing and planning in a rapidly evolving residential landscape.

Our market leading expertise and thought leadership in the residential sector puts us in an ideal position to scrutinise the proposed reforms and identify both areas of concern as well as opportunities for our clients. We have taken an active role in responding to Government consultations and keeping our clients fully appraised of the potential impact of reforms.

We act for urban estates, house builders, developers and a range of other stakeholders in the residential and mixed-use sectors. With specialist residential expertise in Real Estate, Real Estate Disputes, Planning, Private Property and Construction, as well as complimentary areas including tax and corporate structuring, we are uniquely placed to provide you with a seamless, multi-disciplinary approach enabling you to maximise the potential of your opportunities in the residential and mixed-use sectors.
