Real property law is a core part of our experience and underpins our other specialist areas. We are regularly instructed by and on behalf of private individuals, companies, financial institutions and public authorities in a broad range of areas including easements, adverse possession, boundary disputes, construction disputes and defective buildings.
Recent examples of reported cases include:
- R (Wood & Turley) v Leeds CC  EWHC 2598 (Admin) (valuation of allotments)
- Trustees of the Green Masjid v Birmingham CC  UKUT 355 (LC) (application to vary or discharge a restrictive covenant; relevance of “conduct” issues)
- Swan Housing Association Ltd v Gill  EWHC 3129 (QB);  1 WLR 1253 (role of the court in deciding adverse possession issues since the passage of the Land Registration Act 2002)
Members are recommended for property work in both the Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners and are active participants in the Property Bar Association, including serving on its Executive Committee.
In addition, we are exceptionally strong in all residential property law disputes, especially those involving long-leasehold disputes.
