Position

Louise is a specialist property and chancery practitioner, with a particular emphasis on the law of landlord and tenant. In the residential sphere, Louise is frequently instructed in possession actions by both tenants and landlords, which regularly include a number of local authorities and housing associations. She is experienced in dealing with a range of claims dealing with breaches of covenant, particularly quiet enjoyment and disrepair. She has been involved in a number of cases concerning anti-social behaviour. Louise has considerable experience in successfully obtaining orders against trespassers.

In relation to business premises, Louise has a broad client base, which includes a number of major public house chains and breweries. Her commercial work includes lease renewal disputes, forfeiture and disrepair. She has undertaken a number of cases in relation to mobile homes. Her agricultural work includes farm business tenancies, agricultural occupancies and allotments.

Louise regularly appears before the First Tier Tribunal, both in London and in the regions, acting on behalf of both lessors and lessees. She has particular experience in service charge disputes and determinations under section 168 of the Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act 2002.

Her broader property and chancery practice extends to boundaries, easement, TOLATA, probate, insolvency and claims under the I(PFD)A 1975.

Louise has a developing practice in respect of the Court Of Protection, with a natural emphasis on property and financial affairs, but also concerning welfare decisions and DOLS applications. Examples of cases in which she has been instructed include the proper exercise of the powers of a deputy, revocation of an enduring power of attorney, capacity to create a lasting power of attorney and the contested approval of a statutory will.
