Within: Social housing: tenant

Anthony Gold has a first-rate reputation assisting social tenants and leaseholders with complex cases, where there is often an interplay between social housing and other areas, such as public law and human rights, family law, trusts and personal injury law. The firm also has an excellent record acting for homeless individuals and families. Sara Stephens, practice head Andrew Brookes  and Giles Peaker are among the members of the team, which is representing 41 residents and former residents of the Ledbury Estate in claims against the London Borough of Southwark for alleged breaches of repairing obligations. In addition, Brookes and solicitor Jennifer Evans are acting for a number of survivors of the Grenfell Tower fire in an ongoing inquiry. Timothy Waitt represented an individual tenant with medical needs in court proceedings arising from a local authority's refusal to accept his homelessness application, following his eviction from private rented accommodation which was in severe disrepair. Consultant Deirdre Forster is another notable individual.
