Falcon Chambers is β€˜number one when it comes to pure property and landlord and tenant work, where the barristers are a veritable β€œwho’s who” of the leading authorities in these areas’. Three were involved in the Supreme Court case of Loose v Lynn Shellfish, concerning prescriptive property rights, and two were successful in the property and human rights case, McDonald v McDonald. The set is also very highly regarded for its agriculture practice.

Barristers of Landmark Chambers are β€˜set apart by their speed of delivery, and willingness to work as a team and develop good relationships’. Recent highlights include S J & J Monk (a firm) v Newbigin (valuation officer) in the Supreme Court, concerning the valuation approach to a property undergoing refurbishment, and Court of Appeal cases Dudley Muslim Association v Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council and The Gulf Agencies v Ahmed.

Maitland Chambers is β€˜a reliable set with a good reputation’, where clerks β€˜go out of their way to make sure clients have everything needed to weather a storm, even at very short notice’. Members are known for handling high-value commercial property disputes, possession hearings and insolvency-related property cases, among others. Notable instructions include FHR European Ventures LLP v Mankarious in the Supreme Court and Grosvenor (Mayfair) Estate v Merix International Ventures in the Court of Appeal.

Tanfield Chambers is β€˜an excellent set at all levels and greatly enhanced by the efforts of chambers head’ Philip Rainey QC. The set has a strong enfranchisement and residential offering, and is also noted for cases that crossover with professional negligence, traditional Chancery law, social housing and public law. Rainey was successful at the Supreme Court in Kumarasamy v Edwards, concerning sub-letting flat owners’ liability for disrepair.

Wilberforce Chambers is β€˜an extremely strong set for property law with real strength in depth among the silks and juniors’. Deputy head of chambers Jonathan Seitler QC scored a hat trick through acting for the successful parties in Timothy Taylor v Mayfair House, EMI Group v O & H Q1 and Mortgage Agency Services Number One v Cripps Harries Hall, while Joanne Wicks QC is handling the leading case on overage, Bryant Homes and others v Stein Management.

Enterprise Chambers is β€˜a good, solid real estate set with approachable, down-to-earth barristers’, headed by the β€˜brilliant’ Zia Bhaloo QC.

At Hardwicke, Brie Stevens-Hoare QC appeared in Marlbray v Laditi & Laditi, and John de Waal QC handled a party wall dispute, Foxland Management v Redab Finchley. The set reaps praise for its modern approach and accessibility, and β€˜the barristers respond quickly and helpfully to ad-hoc emails’.

Radcliffe Chambers is β€˜a cost-effective set with a real estate specialism’, where the clerks are β€˜always helpful and approachable, and can provide counsel even at the last minute’. Members have niche expertise in agricultural estates, which complements the set’s broader property and private client practices.

Selborne Chambers has β€˜a well-deserved reputation for being a leader in the field, and availability is not an issue due to strength in depth’. Recent appellate cases undertaken by members include Freifeld v West Kensington Court, Marlbray v Laditi & Laditi, and P&P Property v (1) Owen White & Catlin (2) Crownvent t/a Winkworth.

New Square Chambers is β€˜a leading set for access to the countryside and right of way cases, with efficient and approachable clerks’. Trail Riders Fellowship and Tilbury v Dorset County Council was an inter-chambers battle between Adrian Pay and George Laurence QC, which questioned whether digitally produced maps satisfy the requirements as to scale in the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981; Pay was successful for the respondents.

Serle Court has β€˜good strength across different call levels and is always likely to be able to provide someone at short notice’. Members have particular expertise in rights of light, restrictive covenants and the law relating to waterways, and recent notable cases include Loose v Lynn Shellfish.

Henderson Chambers is β€˜an eminently approachable and flexible set, which provides a consistent high-quality service’. Members strengths include cases involving the Party Wall Act, dilapidations, and development and boundary disputes.

Ten Old Square is β€˜a friendly set with a good selection of landlord and tenant specialists’. Members are known for their expertise in rent review arbitrations, high-value leasehold enfranchisement matters, agricultural tenancy disputes and proprietary estoppels.
