Alexander acts in all areas of residential landlord and tenant law, from injunctions, disrepair, and possession proceedings. He prides himself on providing pragmatic pre-issue advice, which often results in cases being settled without the expense of legal proceedings. Once proceedings are issued, however, he acts to safeguard his clients’ interest with input into the evidence gathering and tactical process of preparing to trial.
At court, Alexander relies on an extensive knowledge of the case law to argue his clients’ cases forcefully and forensically, as well as being a skilful cross examiner when the case requires it. Alexander has an interest in judicial review as well, in a housing context.

Alexander Pritchard-Jones instructed in an application for a last minute injunction and exclusion order to stop a tenant in a multi story block of flats from starting fires in the kitchen and bathroom. Given the draconian nature of an exclusion order this case involved substantial engagement with the proportionality of an exclusion order and involved balancing the Act 8 home rights of the tenant with the right to life of the other residents. Alexander was successful in persuading the judge that an exclusion order was proportionate and should be made to protect the other tenants of the client.
