Member briefing on new legislation affecting housing associations

Stiofán Doherty of Pinsent Masons will deliver a Member Briefing on new legislation concerning housing associations at NIFHA on Thursday, 7th June.

During the session, which starts at 8.30 am, he’ll discuss the impact of the 2016 Credit Unions and Co-operative and Community Benefit Societies NI. Stiofán will also look at the Housing and Planning Act 2016 (which does not extend to NI) and discuss the likely impact on registered housing associations if similar legislation were introduced in here, in particular as regards insolvency.

Stiofán has experience advising on secured and unsecured lending, acquisition finance, property investment and development finance, bilateral and syndicated loan documentation, project finance, education finance, social housing finance and general corporate lending.  He also has experience in securitisation and debt capital markets transactions. Stiofán acts for a wide range of clients, from banks, building societies, financial institutions and other financiers to corporate borrowers, issuers and special purpose vehicles.

As always, attendance is free of charge for members, but you are asked to register online or by email to before 3pm on Wednesday, 6th June.
