Examples of matters we have acted in include;
- contentious issues such as enforcing the terms of the Trust against its members
- a complex property project involving a social housing trust’s ongoing management of an estate in North London undergoing significant roof top development
- governance advice to a registered provider on the role of its directors, members and alterations to the provider’s constitution
- advice to London local authority on a development to increase their social housing stock

Our lawyers also regularly provide real estate advice to leaseholders whose landlord is a local authority or social housing trust on matters such as staircasing shared ownership flats and lease extensions. Knowing the requirements and demands of local authorities and social housing trust enables us to advise our leaseholder clients accurately on the ongoing management of their case within the context of this particular industry.
Whatever your matter Comptons have the necessary technical ability, industry knowledge, experience and systems to lead you safely through the law, delivering the results efficiently and cost effectively.
