Associate in the housing management team
I provide non-contentious specialist housing management advice and training to landlords who are primarily registered providers. I specialise in service charges (including section 20 consultation and first-tier tribunal applications) and tenure advice, where I excel in highly technical and often complex advice.
I frequently provide full occupancy agreement/policy and procedure reviews and advice, along with specialist advice on other housing management issues, such as rent review, service charges, succession, consultation and compliance with housing legislation and guidance.
I also advise on leasehold management issues, including interpretation of leases, service charge recovery and landlord and leaseholder rights and obligations generally.
I started my career at a specialised housing management firm, where in addition to advising on non-contentious housing management issues, I also gained experience of a wide range of housing management litigation, including service charge disputes and the enforcement of tenancy agreements through possession and injunction proceedings, arising largely out of anti-social behaviour, illegal use, condition of the property and unlawful occupation. I also have experience in planning and delivering bespoke training packages on a wide range of housing management issues. Since joining Anthony Collins Solicitors, I have concentrated on non-contentious technical housing management advice and training.
Residents are now unable to make applications to prohibit landlords from seeking to recover the cost of legal proceedings through the service charge on behalf of other residents, without consent.
The Tenant Fees Act 2019 came into force on 1 June 2019.
The case was Various Occupational Leaseholders of Foundling Court and O’Donnell Court, Brunswick Centre, London v (1) London Borough of Camden (2) Allied London (Brunswick) Limited  UKUT 366 (LC) and others.
