Real Property & Chancery

Camilla has appeared in high profile real property cases in both the High Court and Court of Appeal. She regularly acts for clients in relation to options, covenants, easements and rights to light that affect property development. Most recently she acted for Berkeley Homes in proceedings in the Chancery Division relating to the West End Gate Development at Paddington Green.

Significant real property cases in which she has acted include.

  • Crest Nicholson Residential (South) Ltd v McAllister [2004] 1 WLR 2409 (restrictive covenants)(petition to House of Lords)

  • Carter and another v Cole and another [2006] EWCA Civ 398 (easements)

  • G & S Brough Ltd v Salvage Wharf Ltd & Birmingham Development Company (2008) Ch D, (rights of light)

  • Charles Russell LLP v Rehman [2010] EWHC 202 (Ch) ( freezing injunctions)

  • Chappell v Chappell (2013) Ch D (rectification of transfer of landed estate)

  • Christofi v National Bank of Greece [2015] All ER (D) 84 (charging orders, recognition of foreign judgments under the Judgments Regulations)

Having practised in Lincoln’s Inn before joining Landmark, Camilla is well able to draw on her understanding of trusts, inheritance and insolvency to provide a comprehensive service to her clients in cases where these areas overlap with more conventional property law issues. 

Camilla has “recognised skill in dealing with property disputes with an environmental angle” (Chambers & Partners 2015). For example she acted for National Grid defending a claim for alleged interference with a spring water bottling business by the installation of the Milford Haven gas pipeline and for the operator of a vegetable processing factory in a claim before the TCC defending claims made in nuisance and under the Environmental Protection Act 1990, alleging excessive use of an easement to discharge effluent.

Her practice also covers professional negligence and she acts for claimants and insurers in relation to claims against conveyancers and surveyors. Camilla’s practice includes the law of estate agency and she has advised in relation to the formulation of legal guidance to the estate agents’ profession as a whole.
