Unfortunately disputes occur in all businesses. When they do we can provide you with clear advice on where you stand and what remedies are available to you

Working closely with our Local Government, Housing Projects and Housing Transfer teams, we have extensive experience of acting for affordable housing providers and local government clients on a wide range of property related disputes.

We offer a quick, efficient and cost effective service and we are able to respond promptly to matters which require urgent attention.
Our team has advised on numerous property related disputes in the High Court and County Court and in the leasehold valuation tribunal. In addition, we have experience in all forms of alternative dispute resolution, including mediation and arbitration, and we recognise that the best solution for all parties to a dispute is frequently to avoid litigation.

Our expertise is flexible and responsive to your needs and includes the following areas:

  • general advice on termination of all types of tenancy, including assured, secure and assured shorthold tenancies;
  • advice on litigation post transfer;
  • contested and non-contested possession actions;
  • disrepair disputes;
  • nuisance and statutory nuisance; and
  • advice on anti-social behaviour and applying for anti-social behaviour injunctions.
