Property - Private property
Sector Leader: John Robson
Arden Chambers is recognised for its private property work. Our clients benefit from our basic professional competence enhanced with a generally higher level of awareness of developments and trends in the law relating to property issues, and a full and up-to-date knowledge of the specialist subject as a whole. This extends from the conveyancing process through to all the matters related to property ownership (such as rights for light, easements, restrictive covenants and ownership).
Our specialist knowledge of private property law issues enables us to advise you on:
- All aspects of conveyancing;
- All rights and interests in property - Trusts of land, proprietary estoppels, constructive trusts, probate disputes, inheritance claims, restrictive covenants, easements and rights to light;
- Title to property eg Boundary disputes, restrictive covenants, easements and rights to light.
In this capacity we traditionally work with all firms but in particular to regional firms of solicitors, advising them on technically complex issues.
