About: Charging

Winckworth Sherwood’s long-established charging team comprises eight specialist lawyers, with many years experience between them. We have many other lawyers available to boost resources if necessary, so we can cope with fluidity in our client’s timescales. We have developed long-term constructive relationships with the banks and trustees (for whom certain team members also act) who are regularly involved in social housing lending as well as their advisors – such as RBS, Barclays, Lloyds, Santander, THFC, Nationwide and Prudential.

Our clients get an efficient, cost-effective and trustworthy service because we have adopted a systematic, team-based approach that enables us to adjust resource inputs quickly if a client’s timetable changes unexpectedly.

Our experience of high-value, large-scale portfolio charging supports our Banking and Finance team in respect of bank funding, ISDAs, private placements and bond transactions, for both lenders and Registered Providers. Our RP clients consist of many of the G15, including:

  • Affinity Sutton (now Clarion)
  • Southern Housing Group
  • Genesis Housing Group
  • Network Housing
  • Vivid Housing
  • Hanover Housing
  • Catalyst Housing Group
  • Vicinity Housing Group
  • Thames Valley Housing
  • Notting Hill Housing Group
