Robert joined Ward Hadaway having spent 20 years working an in-house with a major national Housing Association.

Robert was responsible for heading up the Housing Management Legal Team.  As part a larger Legal Department dealing with all aspects of social housing Law, Robert has gained a breadth of experience in dealing with housing management issues through working at the “coal face” with an Executive Team


In particular, Robert’s experience includes :

  • Complex possession cases involving succession challenges, unlawful subletting and anti-social behaviour cases
  • Drafting standard tenancy agreements including bespoke agreements for particular services
  • Drafting of all types of housing management policies and procedures
  • Working closely with Development Teams to assist with the drafting of nomination agreements and associated housing management issues
  • Strategic and regulatory issues. Robert was involved in campaigning to Government for housing associations to be granted a right of access for gas servicing which resulted in a change to the Regulations to include the “MOT approach” in respect of statutory annual servicing.
