PB’s Property and Estates Group offers advice and advocacy across the whole real property spectrum. Our aim is to provide cost-effective and practical solutions for our clients.

Our barristers advise on and appear in cases relating to boundary disputes, adverse possession, co-ownership and trusts of land, trespass and nuisance, mortgages, property finance, conveyancing disputes, land registration, restrictive covenants and easements/rights of way. Several group members have considerable expertise on the Party Wall etc Act 1996.

The Group advises on all aspects of commercial and residential landlord and tenant law. We offer in-depth knowledge of issues such as forfeiture and surrender, possession, rent reviews, service charge disputes, enfranchisement, claims for new tenancies under the LTA 1954, dilapidations and damages claims.

Our experienced barristers also offer knowledge in specialist areas such as village greens and commons, town and country planning, and highways; our Social Housing team’s work includes anti-social behaviour cases.

Our expertise encompasses drafting pre-action protocol letters through to representation in Tribunal or Court. Counsel regularly appear before the higher courts and specialist tribunals on behalf of landlords, landowners, developers, private companies and individuals as well as advising and representing local authorities. Members also appear in specialist tribunals, such as the First-Tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) and the Lands Chamber of the Upper Tribunal, including claims before the adjudicator to HM Land Registry.

Members of the team undertake the full range of traditional Chancery work including wills and administration of estates, contentious probate, Inheritance Act claims, trusts, charities, personal and corporate insolvency and partnership disputes.
