We are gearing up for a busy Autumn, including the return of CW Housing Week in October. Please keep an eye out for an invitation and full agenda early September. In the meantime, if there are any topics you would like to see, use the email address below to let us know.
We are delighted to welcome Matthew Wilson back to our Housing Management team from September. Matthew spent some of his earlier career at Clarke Willmott and we are very pleased to have him return as a Partner. Whilst his specialism is disrepair, he is fully equipped to support you with all housing management matters having represented social housing clients for many years.
We hope you find our selection of articles useful. Please get in touch if you have any questions.
