Residential Property Sector

I have advised on the resolution of a number of complex situations involving residential property.


Advising a residents company for three blocks of flats in Central London about deficiencies in the service charge provisions of the 56 individual flat leases and possible solutions including variation by the Lower Tribunal, drafting three standard deeds of variation and explanatory letters to all lessees; application to Tribunal on hold pending establishment of sufficient majority.

Dealing with the renewal and extension of a client’s lease in Central London (one of two in a large house where the lessees also owned the freehold) where multiple issues arose regarding the identification of common parts and the division of others, dealing with the sale of the high value flat on completion of the lease extension.

Investigating, viewing and giving preliminary advice to more than 300 owners of an estate on the south east coast where multiple issues arose regarding the respective liabilities of freeholders, developers, builders and the local authority regarding defective estate features.

Advising a residential developer in Berkshire on a range of planning, contractual and enforcement issues in relation to a major town centre development.
