Housing, Landlord & Tenant

College Chambers has a specialist team who undertake both Housing and Landlord and Tenant matters. Our barristers have a range of expertise and invaluable experience at every level. We cover all aspects of housing law including residential and commercial tenancies. We are instructed by tenants, private landlords, commercial landlords, housing associations and local authorities.

We fully appreciate that housing matters can require urgent attention, and we are happy to provide advice on the telephone or urgent written advice if required. Our barristers regularly appear in courts and tribunals, and we will assist you at all stages of the process from emergency applications through to appeals.

At College Chambers we pride ourselves on our multidisciplinary approach, and therefore on those occasions where there are concurrent family, criminal, immigration or benefits matters, we are able to offer appropriate barristers to maintain continuity.
