Weightmans wins housing tender
The Liverpool office of lawyer Weightmans LLP has won a six-year contract with national registered social housing provider Guinness Northern Counties.
The firm will provide legal advice in relation to rent claims, antisocial behaviour, disrepair and general housing and tenancy management related matters. Guinness Northern Counties is one of the UK's largest housing associations, providing nearly 27,000 homes across the north of England.
Sian Evans, head of the social housing team at Weightmans LLP, said: "This is a fantastic result for the firm. Our social housing provision is fast expanding and to provide legal services to such an established housing provider is a brilliant testament to the results we have achieved.
"In light of the Comprehensive Spending Review, organisations such as Guinness Northern Counties are under an increasing pressure to provide quality service on a tight budget. By working together with other law firms in this kind of panel arrangement, we can offer the association real value for money and top quality advice."
