Barristers regulated by the Bar Standards Board.


Whilst under the supervision of Michael Singleton, Eleanor has experienced a range of housing work including:

  • Anti-social behaviour and noise nuisance
  • Contempt and committal
  • Disrepair
  • Mental Capacity Act and Mental Health Act considerations
  • Rental arrears
  • Trespass

She has recently appeared in a case representing a social landlord, obtaining an outright possession order where there had been a long history of anti-social behaviour. She successfully argued for time to be abridged and personal service to be dispensed with in circumstances where the housing association had had significant difficulties in serving the defendants.

Eleanor is regularly instructed to draft statements of case in housing possession cases, particularly in defending disrepair claims.
