  • Possession claims in respect of all types of tenancies, including Housing Act, Rent Act or excluded tenancies
  • Consents to assignment, sub-letting, alterations or development

  • Claims by landlords against tenants for disrepair, arrears or other breaches of covenant

The Property Mediators are very impressive and by far the best mediators I have come across. They are well prepared and instantly gain the confidence of the lay clients. They are extremely hard-working throughout the whole day. As they are all specialists, they know the law and will, when appropriate challenge the strength of a party's case. When parties are deadlocked they will always keep on trying to find a creative solution, thinking outside the box, re-framing. Their track record of settlements really speaks for itself - truly exceptional.
