Experience

  • Achieved success (both at first instance and on an application for permission to appeal) for a landlord client in opposing the grant of a renewal lease to Santander, on the basis of a proposed redevelopment (Santander UK plc v LCP Estates Limited [2018] EWHC 2193 (Ch)).
  • Successfully defended an application under section 84 of the LPA 1925 by a long leasehold tenant who sought to vary its lease user restrictions.  The decision in Edgware Road (2015) Limited v. Church Commissioners for England [2020] UKUT 0104 (LC) preserved the Church Commissioners’ ability to control the management of their estate. An application for permission to appeal was refused.
  • Secured vacant possession of a rooftop of a block of flats in Wembley against a number of telecoms operators, to allow the block to be sold for redevelopment.  Our strategic advice led to the successful conclusion of possession proceedings and a short-term Code agreement for the temporary relocation of the apparatus.
