Wrigleys' involvement in cohousing

Wrigleys Solicitors were involved in setting up one of the first cohousing communities in the UK, Laughton Lodge in East Sussex. More recently, we have advised on innovative models such as mutual home ownership societies ("MHOS").

We have developed bespoke articles of association which we adapt for each cohousing group and are able to offer fixed fees for incorporating a cohousing company and drafting loan agreements between the company and its members.

We have a close working relationship with the UK Cohousing Network, and host regular socials for cohousing groups where we bring groups together to share knowledge and experience. Cohousing is still relatively new in the UK and we view our relationship with cohousing groups as mutually beneficial: we aim to learn from each other and develop the legal framework for this way of living together.

Wrigleys' cohousing clients include:

We offer all new community-led housing groups a free initial 20 minute telephone call to help get you started. Please get in touch with our community-led housing team to arrange this.
