The social housing practice at Anthony Gold Solicitors LLP boasts a team of ‘excellent negotiators’ who are experts on the rights of social housing tenants and leaseholders. Practice head Andrew Brookes, a ‘leader in his field’, specialises in providing advice on leaseholder issues and disrepair matters, and his involvement in the Grenfell inquiry has strengthened the team’s experience in fire safety remediation. The firm has been involved in complex and unusual possession claims and acts for long leaseholders of social housing landlords regarding claims for breach of lease, service charge disputes, and leasehold enfranchisement; Timothy Waitt is an expert in social housing litigation. The group’s experience in housing spans across a range of issues, including tenancy deposits and licensing, and a variety of social housing occupiers, such as shared-ownership tenants and leaseholders. Giles Peaker is a specialist in multi-claimant matters, a growing area of expertise for the firm, and the team now has a successful track record in instructions from groups of tenants and leaseholders. Eleanor Solomon also plays a key role in managing and settling multi-party claims.
Led by the highly experienced Andrew Brookes, Anthony Gold Solicitors LLP has particular expertise in public and administrative law challenges related to housing. The team recently acted in two interventions in the Supreme Court: one judicial review concerning a local authority’s requirement to find suitable accommodation, and the other relating to Rent Repayment Orders for landlords.
Anthony Gold Solicitors LLP has a strong track record handling disputes in the residential sector on behalf of both landlords and tenants. The team is frequently involved in high-profile disputes concerning disrepair and safety, as well as possession claims, breaches of contract and boundary disputes. As team leader, Andrew Brookes has almost 30 years of experience acting for tenants and leaseholders, having previously represented survivors of the Grenfell Tower fire. Giles Peaker has acted for leaseholders in building defect and cladding issue-related work. Sarah Cummins and Robin Stewart are also key names.
