UK law firm TLT has been appointed to Network Homes’ second bespoke legal services framework which allows the housing association to access specialised legal services at competitive fixed and hourly rates.

The new framework replaces the previous panel and came into effect on 1 September. It will run for four years until 2026.

TLT is one of seven firms on the panel which will advise Network Homes in areas such as corporate services, governance, finance, housing management, asset management, property and development.

The chosen firms demonstrated that they will be able to provide Network Homes with high quality professional legal services, across all areas of operation. They have also agreed to support the organisation’s corporate social responsibility aims by providing placements, mentoring, workshops, and careers training and guidance to employees and residents.

Linda Convery, partner and head of social housing at TLT commented: “We are delighted to continue working with Network Homes. Since being appointed to its first legal panel in 2014, we have supported Network Homes on a number of exciting projects in the affordable housing sector. It is no secret that the UK is facing crises both in terms of housing affordability and quality, so it’s very rewarding to have worked with a client that delivers on both fronts.”

Aisha Akhtar, Network Homes Senior Solicitor (Housing and Litigation) and Practice Manager, commented: “We are pleased to announce the panel on our second legal services framework. These firms will help us achieve our strategic objectives by providing high quality advice and support in a number of key areas. We look forward to working with them in the coming years in what is an ever-changing social housing landscape. We hope to once again share our framework with other housing providers.”

In the last year TLT has advised Network Homes on the development and disposal of an element of its landmark £140m residential property development in Southall, London to Grainger plc, the UK's largest listed residential landlord and the acquisition of a large affordable housing development at Burnt Oak Broadway, near Edgware, from Edgware Iron Works Limited.
