Our property litigation barristers have great experience in advising and dealing with landlords, tenants and property owners, in a wide variety of courts and tribunals. They can assist you with preparation of the documents needed to present your claim, preparation for the hearing and representation at the hearing. Where required, they are happy to deal with urgent applications (such as injunction applications) on short notice.
Our members are all used to appearing in the appellate courts, High Court, County Courts and before various tribunals such as the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal, Rent Assessment Committees, the Adjudicator to HM Land Registry, the Lands Tribunal and the First Tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) and Upper Tribunal (Lands Chamber) which have now taken over from those bodies. By instructing one of our barristers you can expect expertise in the relevant law, excellent judgment, thorough preparation and strong courtroom skills.
In addition, our barristers are very comfortable with various methods of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), such as mediation (some of them are themselves qualified mediators). If ADR represents the quickest and most cost-effective method of resolving your dispute they will not hesitate to recommend it and will provide the support and expertise you need to give the best chance of a successful outcome.
The complexities of property / landlord and tenant law and practice can frequently lead to professional negligence claims, usually against solicitors or surveyors. Expertise in these areas of law is invaluable in dealing with professional negligence claims, such as conveyancing negligence claims against solicitors or survey / valuation disputes with surveyors. Here too, our barristers can assist you.
