Bevan Brittan has been appointed to the legal panel of leading South West housing association Knightstone, winning places on seven out of eight lots.

Headquartered in Weston-super-Mare, Knightstone is a significant regional housing association providing services to over 23,000 people in 11,000 homes.  It has recently been announced that it is in merger discussions with Devon and Cornwall based DCH.  If the two associations do merge, they will manage a total of 35,000 homes, with ambitions to build 15,000 new homes over the next ten years.

Bevan Brittan has previously acted for Knightstone on property and development issues but the firm’s remit will now potentially be much wider, having won panel places on the following areas for the next four years:

  • Land & property
  • Housing & property management
  • Leasehold & home ownership management
  • Tenancy enforcement
  • Procurement & contractual arrangements
  • Corporate transactions
  • Governance

Bevan Brittan partner Alison Buckingham will lead the relationship with Knightstone. 
Alison said: “We are delighted to have won a place on Knightstone’s panel and indeed to have significantly expanded the potential range of work we will do for them.  We very much look forward to working with them over the four year appointment.  With so many issues and challenges facing the housing sector, we hope our advice will add real value and help the business achieve its aims.”
