Social Housing & Development

Our Social Housing and Development department specialises in affordable and social housing schemes and all aspects of residential development.

The team is headed by Rory O’Byrne who has many years’ experience in the sector, having acted for nine of the top ten UK house builders, multiple registered providers and local authorities. He is also an independent board director and vice chair of Severnside Housing Association in Shrewsbury.

Rory has a solid track record for unblocking S106 negotiations and getting bulk affordable housing sales or purchases ‘across the line’ whether that be to achieve grant funding or year-end deadlines.

We act in respect of all forms of deal structure, including:

  • Strategic land acquisition
  • Options, promotion agreements
  • Investor sales and purchases
  • Off-the-shelf (turn key) deals
  • Golden brick deals
  • Stock rationalisation
  • Regeneration projects
  • Contractual joint ventures for housing development

 

We act for a number of local developers, including one of Shropshire’s largest privately owned house builders, providing assistance in both site acquisitions and plot sales.

Our team is ideally placed to assist developers, registered providers, local authorities and land owners in all aspects of residential development work.
