Essential Residential Hub

Welcome to the Essential Residential Hub: access the latest resources, expert insight and advice on the key issues impacting the residential sector.


Our strategic guidance and bespoke advice in a period of significant change and transition enables our clients to manage and plan in a rapidly evolving residential landscape. We are thought leaders in the residential arena, publishing regular insights with Essential Residential news.

To support this, we have developed a series of timeline platforms showing an overview of the changes which have been made and which are planned for two key areas: leasehold reform and the private rented sector.  View these timelines below:

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.

Charles Russell Speechlys' market leading expertise 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.

Charles Russell Speechlys acts for urban estates, house builders, developers and a range of other stakeholders in the residential and mixed-use sectors. We understand that any changes to the legal framework affecting the development and ownership of assets in these sectors will be of critical importance to our clients' businesses. 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.
