Property litigation

We handle complex and high-value property litigation matters on behalf of landowners, developers and commercial landlords.

Our Real Estate Litigation team handle complex and highly technical cases involving issues of misrepresentation, restrictions, overage, options to purchase and property-related insolvency matters.

We also have extensive experience in dealing with complex dilapidation claims, land disputes including claims for specific performance, land interests, easements and restrictive covenants, as well as claims for the possession of land, adverse possession claims and beneficial interest claims. We have developed a particular expertise in licensed trade property disputes, having acted for several household name breweries.

We are fully familiar with those aspects of property disputes that are bespoke to licensed premises, such as licensing obligations, tie obligations, code of practice disputes, PICAS and PIRRS complaints, amongst others.

We have secured possession of hundreds of licensed premises for our brewery clients and defended them against claims arising out of alleged misrepresentations and disrepair.

Some of the specific areas that we cover within property litigation are:

  • Commercial/residential landlord and tenant
  • Development disputes
  • Overage disputes
  • Restrictive covenants
  • Easements
  • Ownership disputes
  • Rectification of title
  • Adverse possession
  • Trespassers and travellers
  • Nuisance claims
