Social housing in Regional Bar

St Ives Chambers

Members of the social housing team at St Ives Chambers primarily act on behalf of local authorities and housing associations, dealing with instances of anti-social behaviour, traveller issues, evictions, nuisance, and homelessness applications. Michael Singleton leads the group, and recently represented Mossbank Homes Limited in a possession claim against a defendant with severe mental health issues for whom local authority support had been withdrawn. Other prominent practitioners within chambers include Michelle Caney, who represents Black Country Housing Group in a possession claim issued against a tenant who was a hoarder, in which the defendant has been granted leave to appeal, and Anya Newman, who also undertakes some work for tenants.
