London > Real estate > Social housing: finance

Although Pinsent Masons LLP‘s national social housing finance practice is primarily weighted towards acting for lenders (including all the main clearing banks and alternative funders), its excellent reputation sees the firm also generate work from government bodies, local authorities and registered social landlords. The firm has a longstanding relationship with Homes England, for which it has provided legal advice for more than 20 years. A key practitioner is Edward Sunderland, whose experience spans securitisation, debt capital markets, receivables and asset-backed finance. Sunderland was the lead adviser to Pension Insurance Corporation plc on a £100m secured private placement issued by Accord Housing Association Ltd. In another mandate, Sarah Whitty (who leads the national social housing finance practice) and Stephen Brown acted for HSBC Bank on the provision of a £200m loan facility to Genesis Housing Association and the charging of over 1,000 units. Anne Bowden and David Meecham are also highly rated.
