Getting your house in order

Specialist Social Housing Lawyers

Building affordable homes is a vital task, but the reality of social housing can often throw obstacles in your way: legal, practical and political.

Recent deregulation in the sector can throw up more questions than answers.

That’s why you need social housing lawyers who give you the responsive and practical advice you need to remove any stumbling blocks and smooth the path to driving your projects forward.

At Steele Raymond, we give you the key advice you need, when you need it.

Helping you with development & social housing law

Steele Raymond’s pro-active, specialist social housing solicitors know the law. That’s a given. More importantly, we know how to apply it on the ground. We work with your teams at all levels of your business from the building site to the board room table.

We’ve been helping house builders and registered providers of social housing on all aspects of the development process for decades: from the initial site investigation, through the planning process, to the final plot disposal.
