More about Housing Management and Tenancy Enforcement

Our advice is practical - we use straightforward language and offer innovative solutions. We conduct policy and procedure reviews to ensure that our clients' housing management practices are lawful and in-keeping with the regulatory framework. We also carry out document reviews and routinely assist clients with creating precedent documents.

We offer bespoke training to clients which can be tailored to suit the needs of employees with differing levels of expertise and experience. We also offer legal surgeries and regularly provide our clients with blog posts and e-news to keep them abreast of legal developments.

Here are some examples of areas in which we can assist:

  • Breach of tenancy injunctions

  • Failed succession claims

  • Assignment and mutual exchange

  • Disability discrimination and Equality Act 2010 issues

  • Tenancy fraud and unlawful subletting

  • Trespass and interim possession orders

  • General tenancy management and review of policy and procedures

  • Section 21 claims for assured shorthold tenancies

We find that Forbes have a wealth of experience in all elements of our housing management needs.

Not only did Forbes handle complex and sophisticated matters greatly, they also explained these in a way which was understandable and comprehendible.

The firm is always very responsive and the service is excellent.

Forbes are involved in a number of schemes where we purchase ‘off the shelf’ Section 106 developments, and where the timescales are short between exchanging contracts with the developer and build completion of the first affordable units. Forbes always work to our timescales for the drafting of the Shared Ownership lease and setting up the conveyancing.

Forbes is a well known legal practice within our social housing sector. Having worked with many other legal practices, I view their success is down to their solid team work and communication. Always reasonable and adaptable to our business needs.
