Social Housing

Here at Spire Solicitors LLP we are renowned as a leading supplier of social housing legal services in East Anglia. We are a Tier 1 firm for this area of the law in the Legal 500 guide and are quoted as “…enjoying a fine reputation for acquisitions and funding and redevelopment”.

We act for a large number of housing associations both locally and on a national scale.

Our team is headed up by Estelle Corner, who took over from Kevin in 2018, who was previously acknowledged in the Legal Experts Directory and the 2014 Legal 500 for his specialism in property related work in the social housing sector. Kevin specialises in site acquisition and development, development, planning and infrastructure agreements, property portfolio transfers and large scale/multiple property mortgage security work for housing associations. Kevin still sits within the Social Housing Team.

We have worked within the social housing sector for many years and have extensive experience in dealing with complex issues arising from the landlord and tenant relationship and all aspects of tenancy management. We currently act for a number of Registered Social Landlords throughout East Anglia and have presented cases in the County Courts of Bury St Edmunds, Cambridge, Chelmsford, Ipswich, King’s Lynn, Norwich and Southend-on-Sea.

When disputes with tenants do arise, it is essential you seek expert legal advice to ensure the preliminary steps are carried out properly. If court proceedings are necessary we are able to assist with:

  • Seeking a possession order in relation to anti-social behaviour
  • Taking action where a tenant persistently fails to pay rent
  • Taking action when a tenant breaches tenancy terms
  • Seeking possession where a property has been sublet
