Owners of residential property portfolios face different challenges to those owning commercial property. Regulation is much tighter, and actions are subject to wider scrutiny. As well as this, when disputes do arise, residential tenants or occupiers are much more likely to want to protect or enhance their rights.
Our residential property litigation services include:
- Recovering possession of property
- Claims for disrepair and other disputes over breaches of covenant
- Service charge disputes, challenges and consultations
- Applications to the First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) and the Upper Tribunal
- Recovery of premises from unlawful occupiers/squatters
- Lease extensions and collective enfranchisement claims
- Acquisition of the freehold interest by leaseholders
- Disputes with owners of neighbouring properties over boundaries, easements (e.g. rights of way, rights to park, rights to light, etc.), trespass, nuisance and adverse possession
We regularly act on behalf of investors, landlords, homeowners and leaseholders in relation to all manner of disputes relating to residential property.
