Through 50 years’ of in-depth professional experience in dealing with social housing issues, Sedgwick Legal is one of a very exclusive number of law firms in the North West that can offer truly intuitive expertise in the regeneration sector.
This area of building development can be fraught with unanticipated legal complications, which can result in complicated resolution if you are not properly informed from day one.
Thanks to our wholesale involvement with a number of leading housing associations on larger projects, Sedgwick Legal has established itself as a leading solicitor in the regeneration sector.
In particular, Sedgwick Legal has gained extensive experience in home-swaps, and negotiating on behalf of our clients with public sector housing tenants who have been unwilling to move. This has often involved ‘toothcomb’ reviews of landlord and tenant law to determine a successful resolution. In a recent £9 million development project, Sedgwick Legal were required to assist in the relocations of several hundred tenants on the development site. Once completed, our contribution to this project ensured a substantial increase in the value of the housing stock.
With a respected portfolio of Registered Social Landlord (RSL) stock transfer work, and substantial experience in the particular problems of housing estate renewal and regeneration work, Sedgwick Legal can offer a genuine expert service.
Our solicitors have specialist knowledge not only of their own legal areas, but develop a unique relationship with every client, acquiring an insight to their business in order to deliver the most appropriate legal advice. This is because, unlike many large firms, Sedgwick Legal develops long-term career plans for our associates, avoiding rapid staff turnover that can erode businesses.
Our clients therefore feel that they are in expert hands, and that their interests are being properly and consistently looked after at a cost-effective level. That’s why we are Lexcel Accredited.
