PfH is supporting its members by launching a Legal Services framework in response to the Part B Services changes indicated by the new EU Procurement Directives. Find out more about the new EU Procurement Directives here.
This new framework provides members with a compliant route for the procurement of legal services.
It has been split into five distinct lots:
Lot 1. Property - Acquisitions and disposals, leases, licensing and conveyacing - especially low cost home ownership, landlord & tenant issues including social housing tenancy advice and leaseholder consultations
Lot 2. Development - Site development / property development including associated plot sales, environmental and planning, construction, compulsory purchase, procurement and contractual matters
Lot 3. Corporate & Finance - Procurement law, mergers & acquisitions, joint ventures, and corporate finance
Lot 4. Employment - Employment law, equal opportunities, TUPE / outsourcing, pensions, health & safety (employees) and organisational change
Lot 5. Housing Management - Possession changes, anti social behaviour, debt recovery, disrepair cases, landlord & tenant disputes, access injunctions and other general litigation.
Why use this framework?
- This agreement eliminates the risk of challenge or financial penalties for non-compliance as all awarded suppliers have successfully completed a comprehensive procurement process.
- We have negotiated a fixed price per hour based on 5 different job roles to allow you to predict budgets and project costs.
- You will have access to 7 strong and reputable legal firms who will advise and provide regular updates on a range of topics and legislation changes.
- You will receive procurement support from our team of professionals offering on-going contract management and supplier performance monitoring.
