Liverpool is to play host to a major social housing event when the Social Housing Conference returns to the BT Convention Centre on November 11 for the second year running. 

David Orr, Chief Executive of the National Housing Federation, spoke frankly last Friday about the challenges faced by the housing sector and the impending changes to the regulatory landscape.

He urged social housing providers to “look within” and maximise the potential of internal resources to help assert control over the future of the social housing environment.

North West law firm Brabners Chaffe Street is leading the way in supporting the legal profession in 2012 with two of the firm's Partners appointed to the helm of the region's two biggest law societies. Jeff Lewis has taken over as President of Manchester Law Society and Alistair Fletcher has been chosen as Vice President of Liverpool Law Society. 

Both Partners at Brabners Chaffe Street are keen to give something back and support the profession through the major changes ahead.

Josephine Sharrock, solicitor at Brabners Chaffe Street comments:

On 2 March, the High Court handed down judgment in the case of The Riverside Group Limited v Sharon Thomas.

The decision is important because it is binding on all county courts and addresses the way in which social landlords can terminate starter tenancies, being a probationary period at the commencement of a tenancy.

Young homeless people will be given a helping hand after local Charities Supported Lodgings received £3200 from the organisers of Liverpool's major Social Housing Conference, law firm Brabners Chaffe Street and accountants Mitchell Charlesworth, and conference sponsors, Arena Housing Group.

Supported Lodgings was established by Local Solutions in 1986 as a supported lodgings scheme to provide ‘family style' accommodation and support for young homeless people in Merseyside aged between 16 and 25.
