Barristers regulated by the Bar Standards Board.

Business & Property

David accepts instructions in all aspects of property law.

David’s work encompasses a broad range of commercial property disputes, including opposed and unopposed lease renewals, dilapidations, forfeiture, service charges and trespass claims.

In terms of residential property, David deals with possession claims, disrepair claims and all manner of breaches of covenant.

Outside of landlord and tenant, he is building a strong practice in disputes involving boundaries, adverse possession, easements and other appurtenant rights.

David likes to get involved with cases as early as possible, and is a pragmatic and commercial practitioner, always on the look-out for the most cost effective means of achieving the client’s objectives.

David’s cases frequently take him to the Technology and Construction Court, First Tier Tribunal Property Chamber and, more recently, the Business and Property Court.

A few recent cases David has been involved in:

  • A three day TCC trial regarding encroaching foundations and allegedly negligent construction works;
  • A four day dilapidations trial involving extensive cross-examination of building and valuation surveyors;
  • A Land Registry tribunal hearing regarding water rights;
  • An appeal regarding the use of expert translation evidence in a lease fraud trial, where the lease had been drafted in Urdu;
  • An unopposed lease renewal application regarding the insertion of a re-development break clause;
  • A three-way dispute between a landlord, a commercial tenant and a neighbouring housing association involving rent suspension, nuisance and the Defective Premises Act;
  • A prescriptive easement claim over the extent of use of a driveway.
