I’m a property dispute resolution lawyer, advising landowners, landlords and tenants in the private and public sectors. I act for commercial developers, retail landlords, NHS bodies and registered providers of social housing. I also have experience in acting for telecoms operators. At any one time I might be advising clients on issues as diverse as business lease renewals, easement and boundary disputes, adverse possession, squatters, drainage/sewage, break notices and dilapidations.
My work regularly involves providing initial risk management advice, in an effort to help clients resolve potential disputes at an early stage, as well as steering clients toward alternative dispute resolution where appropriate. I also handle County Court litigation.
- Laindon Holdings Ltd v South Essex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust – this case made a new law regarding the loss of rent, and fixture and fitting issues following dilapidations and the expiry of a lease.
- Levett -Dunn and Others v NHS Property Services Ltd – This case developed a new law regarding the correct address for the service of break-clause notices in commercial leases.
