Anthony Collins Solicitors, Birmingham Law Society’s Firm of Year 2018, has been supporting community-led housing for over 25 years.
“We want every community to be able to start a Community Land Trust, to solve their own housing needs. These new model rules take them one step closer to that goal, making it cost effective to incorporate their CLT with a strong governance model and new ways to raise finance. It has been a pleasure to work on this with Anthony Collins Solicitors, one of the leading firms in the community-led housing sector. They have brought their knowledge and perseverance to updating these rules, which we expect to be put to good use by the dozens of new CLTs starting up each year.”
Tom Chance, Head of Grants and Development at National CLT Network commented.
We recently revised the model rules for CLTs working alongside Tom Chance of NCLT Network to meet all of the regulatory requirements in respect of the same.
