Having a specialist and dedicated team with decades of experience working solely for social landlords, we are tuned into how social landlords operate. We know our audience and pride ourselves on being accessible, removing the perceived barrier between solicitors and clients, avoiding using legal jargon wherever possible and being an extension of our clients’ teams rather than an external law firm. This has helped Tom Knox and the team develop a unique place in the market and has allowed us to home in on what our clients want, enabling us to be succinct and confident in the advice we give.
We represent many of the main social housing providers in the North. We are regularly called upon to advise across a broad spectrum of tenure types, from general needs, supported housing, specialist supported housing, homelessness accommodation, care homes, market rents, foyers for under 18s, as well as student accommodation. All of this experience means we have come across most of the scenarios that face our clients today.
As a result of our experience, the breadth of work which we cover and the fact that our fee earners are all legally qualified, means our advice is always technically sound and erudite. We’ve been there before, we know what works and we know how to communicate our advice to our clients in a no nonsense, straightforward and friendly manner.
