Housing Built Environment

We assist Approved Housing Bodies and other housing associations with their charity law, legal structure, governance and compliance needs.

In addition to regulation by the Charities Regulator this cohort of charities are also subject to parallel regulation by the new Approved Housing Body Regulatory Authority (the AHBRA) as well as having to meet the requirements of the HSE and/or Local Authorities if in receipt of their funding.

The types of instructions that we have assisted housing clients with include registration as a charity, compliance matters relating to registration with the AHBRA, legal structure issues (including the establishment of joint venture entities for new projects) and compliance generally.
