BUSINESS OBJECTIVES ACHIEVED

together

Forbes offers a comprehensive service to registered providers and local authorities which gives specialist advice, guidance and support towards satisfying their legal obligations in respect of all aspects of cyclical maintenance.

We have a strong understanding of the housing sector and the challenges it faces in managing the risks to health and safety posed by gas, electric, fire safety, asbestos, and legionella. We advise landlords of the nature and extent of their legislative duties, offering informed guidance as to best practice and the steps to be taken in ensuring compliance with the relevant standards of the regulatory framework.

We have a dedicated team that is on hand to tackle any difficulties that landlords may encounter in trying to gaining access to tenanted housing stock for the purposes of inspection and repair, including annual gas safety checks and routine risk assessments. We are well adept at seeking a wide range of legal remedies in this regard, from applications for injunctions and forced access orders through to claims for possession.

We have extensive experience of conducting policy and procedure reviews. We work closely with landlords to develop effective processes that are capable of addressing a wide range of issues arising out of cyclical maintenance. We strive to keep landlords abreast of developments in the law in this ever-changing sector, offering a variety of off-the-peg training sessions to landlords of delivering bespoke training if called upon.

At all times we adopt a collaborative approach to this practice area, working alongside landlords to help them discharge their duties in as efficient and effective a way as possible.
