Law firm secures spot on social housing framework

Roythornes Solicitors has won a place on the Regenda Group framework to deliver legal expertise across its housing, construction care, and support focused organisations.

Roythornes was awarded two framework lots, including the property, development, and construction lot, which will be headed by Bhavesh Amlani, partner and head of real estate.

Its place on the housing, management, and commercial lot will be led by specialist Bukola Obadun-Craigs, who recently joined Roythornes as a partner.

The Regenda Group is a collection of organisations which works to regenerate places. Its core business is Regenda Homes, a housing association managing more than 13,000 properties across the North West.

This recent success is hot off the heels of several new client wins for Roythornes, with the real estate and property team securing a number of new accounts this year.

Amlani said: “We are delighted to be appointed onto the Regenda Group legal framework following a robust tender process. We’ve built a reputation for our experience and expertise in the social housing sector, so this appointment marks a significant milestone for us.

“We’re really pleased to be building a strong relationship with Regenda Group, particularly its housing arm, and I look forward to working on future property, development, and construction projects with them.”

Obadun-Craigs added: “Property litigation, specifically housing management – which includes leasehold management and housing management litigation – is my particular area of expertise, so I’m delighted to have secured the housing, management, and commercial lot on the framework.

“Regenda Group largely looks after social housing, independent living schemes and supported homes so it’s an ideal partnership that aligns with my expertise.”

Julie Vincent, director of business assurance at The Regenda Group, said: “Congratulations to Roythornes and the other companies who have been awarded a place on the legal services framework. This framework will enable The Regenda Group and other organisations operating in the housing sector to access great quality legal support via businesses that match our strong social values. We look forward to working with them in the future.”
