• I am a housing management specialist with experience of advising on a very wide range of contentious and non-contentious housing management matters. My work involves advising landlords on matters such as breach of covenants, nuisance, possession, subletting, hoarding, disrepair and failing to provide access. I act primarily for registered providers, charitable organisations, Arm's Length Management Organisations and local authorities.

    My practice involves acting for private, housing association landlords and local authorities.  The Legal 500 have recognised me as, “first-rate".

    Articles:

    Over the past few years, I have written several articles for Inside Housing and 24Housing, together with media statements on:
    Gas Safety: updated regulations offer more flexibility

    Seminars and Training:

    I have spoken at the National Federation of ALMOs on private rental sector tenancies.  In addition, I regularly also organise and facilitate training sessions for clients, both in-house and on-premises.

    • I acted for a large housing association who acquired a block of flats pursuant to a section 106 agreement. Each of the ten units suffered from damp and disrepair, and a subsequent investigation found the development was substandard.   My client faced disrepair claims from 10 separate tenants.  We threatened to enforce the development agreement and negotiated with the developer a settlement of in excess of £200,000.  We then settled all the disrepair claims for £64,000, leaving my client with a profit of in excess of £100,000.
    • I acted for a housing association defending a disrepair claim which resulted in a costs award in my client's favour in excess of £30,000.
