Social Housing

Property Partners for the Social Housing Sector

We have particular expertise in the Social Housing sector and are recognised as one of the leading property consultants in this rapidly evolving part of the market. We are retained by many of Scotland’s leading social housing groups and by many local authorities.

We can support you, whether you are looking to buy, develop or dispose of Social Housing assets. We can also help you invest in this type of property, assist you with business sales and acquisitions, and provide you with integrated solutions if you have social housing assets that needs to be monitored, managed, refurbished or improved.

We add value every step of the way – whether it’s using our negotiating skills to get the best possible deal, or looking for opportunities to maximise the value of your assets through strategic enhancements.

Everything we do is designed to add value to your business and help you streamline your operations. We’ll work closely with you to provide a bespoke solution to your specific needs. Our comprehensive range of services includes:

Social Housing Specialists

We offer a level of specialist expertise and experience that most other property consultancies lack. Our advice is well-researched and realistic and we are skilled at working with all the key players in the sector, including staff, tenants, landlords, solicitors and key public sector bodies.

We are experts at helping our clients find and purchase the most appropriate premises or businesses for their social housing development needs. We can also provide strategic and financial advice on acquisitions, helping our clients to build a dynamic and profitable social housing portfolio.

We know how complex negotiations in this sector and offer a sector-specific understanding of valuation asset management and development appraisals.

We work on some of Scotland’s most high-profile Social Housing projects, but provide the same high level of service to all our clients big or small. Our corporate resources allow us to work as long-term partners with our clients and help them to achieve their business goals.
