Whether you are a commercial occupier, house builder/developer or simply a home owner, property disputes are often unavoidable, arising out of anything. Our specialist team of experts are here to help you.

Our property litigation team have an extensive and successful track record of acting for house builders, developers and land owners, some of whom we have acted for over many years.

We know that different clients have different objectives and varying levels of resources to devote to resolving a dispute.

Common issues can include unclear or ambiguous deeds, negligent conveyancing, or the insolvency of a tenant.
