Specialist in litigation.
With experience in commercial litigation, I advise commercial and third sector clients on all aspects of debt recovery including both claimant and defendant work and enforcement proceedings. I work with registered providers in respect of possession proceedings based on a wide range of grounds, including warrants for eviction, injunctions based on anti-social behaviour, and access and committal proceedings.
Before securing a training contract, I spent time as a paralegal in housing litigation, housing management and clinical negligence. I’ve also got advocacy experience in county court.
Haringey LBC v Simawi 2018 focussed on the issue of statutory succession where one of two joint secure tenants had died, then the remaining tenant later died leaving an adult child in occupation.
Of course, the starting point should always be warning letters and discussions with the leaseholder to ensure they are aware of the terms of their lease and the allegations of breach.
If a periodic tenant dies without leaving a will, the correct process for bringing the tenancy to an end is to serve a Notice to Quit (NTQ) at the property addresses to “the personal representatives of [name of deceased tenant]”.
