Property Disputes

Whether your issue concerns residential or commercial property we have one of the largest teams of specialist litigators in the South East including partners, solicitors, trainees and paralegals. We are experienced in acting in a range of property litigation disputes nationally.

Our property litigation team act for landlords of property nationwide, helping landlords evict bad tenants and in dealing with situations where rent arrears have accrued or where a tenant is claiming damages for disrepair. In many cases we are able to offer our fixed fee possession service and our team have successfully acted in hundreds of possession and landlord and tenant claims. Typically we only act for landlords. The law in this area has changed significantly in the last ten years or so especially. The law is precise and apparently minor problems can lead to wasted time and costs. We help landlords resolve these problems and issues with the minimal fuss and cost. The advice we always give is tailored to regaining possession and any arrears as quickly, cheaply and as painlessly as possible.

We are also experienced in dealing with more complex property litigation including more significant claims and frequently help landlords and freehold owners, developers, portfolio owners or offshore companies claiming to recover losses or defend claims issued against them. We also assist construction companies nationally resolve and avoid disputes involving litigation and adjudications.

We frequently act for block managers in dealing with lessees who have fallen into service charge arrears and are able to assist and advise people involved in first tier tribunal proceedings.

Our work includes services for commercial landlords as well as residential property landlords. We frequently act for landlords of commercial property in dealing with breaches of lease and forfeiture and are happy to assist and advise in this legal area.

In many property disputes we are able to charge low fixed fees or can enter into no win, no fee agreements backing our own advice.
