Social Housing

Return to Real Estate

Our Social Housing team is at the forefront of social housing. Over the last number of years our team has engineered legal initiatives and our approach to providing pro-active and cost-effective advice and solutions has made us the leader in this area. Our team has been involved in the following:

  • Acquisition of portfolios of properties for social housing use
  • Acting for State Agencies, including The Housing Agency, Local Authorities and Approved Housing Bodies, in the provision of social housing through joint venture agreements with developers and funds
  • Drafting template leases between Local Authorities and developers in the provision of long term leases for social housing
  • Mortgage to Rent: Acting for a major Irish financial institution in relation to its portfolio of mortgage to rent properties
  • Developing standard documentation for the State and Local Authorities in connection with the provision of Social Housing including development agreements, joint ventures, co-operation agreements, services provision agreements, options and leasing (both short and long term)
  • Advising State Agencies in respect of governance and regulation in respect of Approved Housing Bodies.
