Social housing in Regional Bar

St Ives Chambers

St Ives Chambers social housing team is led by Michael Singleton, who successfully defended a social landlord in a disability discrimination challenge to its allocation policy brought by a litigant in person. Anya Newman  represented a housing association which was granted possession of a property which was let to a married couple, one of whom was serving a prison sentence for sexually abusing a child in the property and wished to return at the conclusion of his sentence.
