Social housing

Tailored solutions that support an essential service for society

Social housing providers are operating in uncertain economic times, with both financial and regulatory pressures being front of mind. Ensuring operational excellence and safeguarding assets is of critical importance. We offer a range of audit, advisory and tax services to help social landlords overcome their biggest challenges.

Our approach 

Social housing plays a vital role in society, but the world in which housing associations and public entities operate faces major challenges. A shifting policy framework, economic constraints, tighter regulations and high demand for services are all placing the sector under greater pressure. 

At Forvis Mazars, we are a leading provider of professional services to the social housing sector. We understand the numerous challenges that social landlords face, such as the need to build new homes, renovate existing assets, and comply with rent and territorial development policies. We appreciate the attention to detail required for operators to deliver high-quality services and ensure the safety of residents.  

We work with a large and diverse portfolio of social housing and care providers, including traditional housing associations, large-scale voluntary transfers, for-profit providers, local authorities and organisations with complex group structures. 

As an organisation, you may be seeking to overcome multiple obstacles, such as: 

  • An uncertain economic environment 
  • Funding shortfalls and future financial viability 
  • Regulatory scrutiny and evolving government policy 
  • Quality assurance and exceeding safety requirements 

Our multidisciplinary team is passionate about the work they do and recognises the crucial role that social housing plays within society. Together, they can provide you with a range of audit, risk advisory, assurance and consultancy services that are aligned to your needs.
