Members of Chambers have considerable experience in housing law from possession proceedings and emergency applications to appeals and judicial review.

Clients range from local authorities, registered providers of social housing (formerly known as registered social landlords) and mutual housing co-operatives to tenants and housing applicants.

Chambers’ expertise in this area is reflected in its appointment to the London Borough Legal Alliance panel, one of only 6 chambers nationally to be appointed for both property and housing law.
