Leading national business law firm Hall & Wilcox has advised one of Australia’s largest non-government social housing providers on its successful tender for a substantial New South Wales social housing management transfer program.
The Hall & Wilcox team was led by partner Katrina Reye, who advised Compass Housing Services (Compass) in its bid to manage more properties in the Hunter Valley region as part of the NSW Government’s Social Housing Management Transfer program.
Compass is a not-for-profit organisation providing secure and affordable housing, and tenancy and property management solutions, for over 30 years in New South Wales, Queensland and New Zealand.
NSW Minister for Social Housing, The Hon Pru Goward MP, announced an extra 1827 properties awarded to Compass management in the Hunter Valley under the program. Prior to the announcement, Compass had over 4400 properties under management across New South Wales and Queensland, making this a big win for the social housing provider.
Katrina said “Hall & Wilcox takes great satisfaction in working on social initiatives. Compass does excellent work in providing stable and affordable housing to those who need it most, and we feel proud to have played a role in this successful result.
“Our team’s experience in working on public private partnerships was extremely beneficial in this tender and we look forward to advising on similar projects in future.”
