Property Law

Members of PanLaw include solicitors and barristers specialising in residential and commercial property related issues and disputes. These specialists can provide landlords and tenants with urgent advice on issues arising out of the COVID-19 pandemic, including by phone and face-to-face by way of various video platforms.

Residential

Our property lawyers are experts in advising and litigating in relation to landlord and tenant disputes and possession claims, including matters relating to long leaseholds, assured shorthold tenancies (including the service and validity of section 8 and section 21 notices), licences, service charge disputes and housing disrepair. The COVID-19 pandemic has obviously affected the abilities of tenants to pay rent or license fees and consequently landlords (who may well only be sub-landlords and thus tenants themselves) have been becoming increasingly anxious. We can provide expert guidance on the current law and in so doing we will try to provide reassurance with a view to you avoiding the need to resort to court or tribunal proceedings.

Commercial

Our property lawyers are regularly consulted by landlords and tenants in relation to commercial lease matters, including renewals under the Landlord and Tenant 1954 and forfeiture, service of section 146 notices and lease disputes, rectification and enfranchisement issues. All of our members are experienced advisers and litigators and they are highly adept at helping people and companies navigate their way around the legal issues caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
