Property  

Our team of experienced specialist residential conveyancing lawyers service a full range of work, from the purchase and sale of property, dealing with remortgages and equity release/transfer to the acquisition of larger development sites and the sale of residential plots.  

We act on behalf of both freeholders and leaseholders in enfranchisement matters and lease extensions. We also deal with the sale and purchase of freehold and leasehold commercial premises and the granting of commercial leases and portfolios.  

Litigation and Dispute Resolution  

We deal with a wide range of litigation law, including cases at various levels of the Civil Courts and a range of Tribunals. Of particular interest may be the work of our landlord and tenant litigation specialists. They provide personalised assistance across various issues, including possession proceedings/forfeiture, recovery of rent arrears, breach of other covenants, residential dilapidations claims, nuisance claims, and trespass. They can also deal with disputes about boundaries, access and rights of way, and rooftop/airspace development.  

Crime/Regulatory 

We can advise and represent Landlords concerning a range of issues, including defending claims for Rent Repayment Orders and alleged legislative breaches that could attract criminal liability. These include alleged breaches of the Housing Act 2004, HMO Regulations, and failure to comply with Planning Enforcement. We can assist at the investigation stage, by advising on and challenging resultant civil penalties, including on appeal and representation at court for those cases that lead to a prosecution. We have a particular specialism in HMO work. One of our team is the author of a specialist legal textbook in this area, relied upon for guidance by other lawyers.
