Chambers Spotlight: Richard Stirk
I head up our Social Housing team in the North and have over 20 years' experience dealing with all aspects of property work, with 13 years specifically in the housing sector. I act for a range of housing associations in connection with development and acquisition work (whether through self-build or section 106 schemes) through a variety of structures (turn-key, golden brick, stage payments, back to back contractor led-schemes etc.), as well as advising on securitisation of stock portfolios and addressing title and other issues that affect security value.
In addition, I deal with property-related aspects of a variety of finance and security work including traditional lending, bonds and private placements, assisting, in particular, with technical property issues and co-ordination of the work to ensure critical deadlines are met along with a wealth of experience of commercial lease and Landlord and Tenant issues.
