Housing

Lucinda has a varied and thriving practice in Housing Law and regularly appears for both Landlord and tenant in first possession hearings through to multi-track trials. Lucinda has experience in areas including, but not limited to, possession, trespass, succession, disrepair, injunction proceedings and committals.

Lucinda regularly advises on Capacity, Equality Act and Public Law issues and engages in complex legal arguments on behalf of the Landlord. Most recently she successfully undertook a multi-day hearing arguing against why an Article 8 Defence and proportionality should not be raised at warrant enforcement stage, particularly when possession was ordered under the S21 accelerated procedure.

Lucinda regularly appears in the High Court, County Court and Youth Court in proceedings involving both individual and multiple defendants in respect of adults and youths. She is instructed regularly on multiple-defendant cases involving extensive anti-social behaviour and has experience dealing with difficult and multiple witnesses.

Lucinda has built a strong reputation as a fierce advocate with a meticulous attention to detail. She thrives herself on her client care whilst managing expectations and securing results.
