BUSINESS OBJECTIVES ACHIEVED
Housing management policy can seem like a minefield at a time when the sector faces increasing challenges, including from tenants on the basis of alleged discrimination or unfairness. Poor drafting can also lead to legal non-compliance, the risk of regulatory sanction, or confusion and disempowerment among housing colleagues. Additional policies are often required following changes in legislation or the introduction of new government initiatives.
At Forbes Solicitors we work with you to bring together our sector expertise and experience in achieving your policy goals. We are able to review policies and procedures, either following a dispute or as part of a routine checkup, and get them fine-tuned to do the job correctly and pragmatically, so that they are easy to understand but strengthened against legal challenge. We can also help you to develop new policies in developing areas, and provide workshop-based training with your colleagues as part of a roll-out to the organisation.
We are also vastly experienced in dealing with challenges under the Equality Act 2010, the Human Rights Act 1998, and public law. Our Higher Rights Advocates can represent housing clients in the County Court and the High Court. We aim to provide advice and representation to avoid disputes at the earliest stage possible and reduce legal expenditure but will always fight your corner.
