Real property

Members of Chambers edit the highly regarded Tolley’s loose-leaf, ‘Claims to the Possession of Land’. The discipline imposed by the process of editing that work has fostered a legacy of expertise at all levels of seniority not just in relation to the law of Landlord & Tenant and Housing Law (in which chambers is an acknowledged leader) but in the law of Real Property more generally.

Members across the spectrum of call are familiar with and enjoy the challenges to which Real Property disputes often give rise and have particular expertise in relation problems concerning:

  • Easements and rights of way
  • Adverse possession (boundary disputes)
  • Restrictive covenants
  • Option, overage and development agreements
  • Mortgages
  • Leasehold enfranchisement and commonhold
  • Claims under the Mobile Homes Act 1983
  • Rights of common

These specialists are, of course, familiar with the procedures adopted pursuant to Land Registration Act 2002 by the Land Registry and the Office of the Adjudicator to HM Land Registry. Max Thorowgood sits as a Deputy Adjudicator
