Location / Yeovil

I work in the Property Dispute Resolution Team – a team recognised in the Legal 500.

I specialise in residential landlord and tenant cases, advising landlords on the various routes to obtaining possession under Sections 8 and 21 of the Housing Act 1988, and on their obligations in relation to tenancy deposit schemes. I also advise tenants when they are faced with eviction, and I advise either side on breaches of tenancy.

I am a regular advocate in the county court, both in bringing actions for claimants and in defending proceedings for defendants.

I draft tenancy agreements and licences to occupy/lodger agreements to meet the specific needs of landlords.

Prior to taking on this role, I spent three years in debt recovery at Battens and bring with me a wealth of knowledge and experience in the recovery of rent arrears.

I am a graduate of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives. I am also a member of the Property Litigation Association and am registered with them as an advocate for the Yeovil and Weymouth County Courts.
