Supported Housing

BUSINESS OBJECTIVES ACHIEVED

together

One of social landlords' most distinctive and vital contributions to the fabric of society is the provision of supported housing. At Forbes Solicitors, we have a long and successful track record of assisting clients in managing this rewarding but demanding facet of our registered providers' housing portfolios.

Whether it is giving guidance on policies, providing training to scheme managers, or taking action to prevent harm to other residents, we are with you at every step. We are vastly experienced in dealing with the wide variety of unusual situations which can crop up in supported housing, including:-

  • Equality Act 2010 and disability discrimination
  • Article 8 of the Human Rights Act 1998
  • Mental Health Act 1983 and Mental Capacity Act 2005
  • Data sharing and GDPR
  • Safeguarding and ASB
  • Security of tenure issues including disguised tenancies, excluded licences and challenges to termination procedures
  • Hostel and temporary homeless accommodation (including "Section 209" tenancies)
  • Inquests following death and suicide
  • Policy and procedure review
  • Advice on management agreements, in conjunction with our Commercial department
  • Reviewing and re-drafting occupation agreements

We are also always on the lookout for opportunities to influence debate in the sector, and have hosted think tanks and networking sessions so that our clients can share best practice and put forward ideas for how supported housing can face new challenges.

For further information about how we can assist, please contact Lachlan McLean or phone 01257 240834 | 07976 242526).
