Bevan Brittan has been awarded a place on the legal panel of leading housing association Riverside, in an appointment that will take effect from April and run for a minimum of three years.

Established 90 years ago, Riverside has grown to become a major provider of affordable housing, care and support services in England and Scotland, with over 52,000 homes in management. Headquartered in Liverpool and operating at scale across more than 160 local authorities, the association’s vision is to transform the lives of the 90,000+ people it houses and revitalise the neighbourhoods in which they live.

Bevan Brittan was successful in the housing management lot, meaning that it will be available to support Riverside on both litigation issues and a wide range of general housing management matters such as advising on tenancy agreements, supported housing occupancy agreements and service level agreements with managing agents. The firm will also offer housing management policy advice including advising on and drafting new forms of tenancy and licensing agreements, rent setting advice, and the drafting of other policies and procedures.

Steven Eccles, partner and head of housing management at Bevan Brittan said: "We are delighted to have been appointed to the Riverside Group's legal panel for housing management work.

"Riverside is a major national player in the affordable housing sector and our appointment is testament to Bevan Brittan's investment in a market-leading national housing management practice, with specialists based across the UK.

"We look forward to bringing our legal expertise and sector knowledge to bear, to help Riverside achieve their vision of transforming lives and revitalising neighbourhoods."
