With seven specialist QCs and 26 specialist juniors, the barristers in Landmark’s property law team have been widely viewed as amongst the best at the Bar for many years.

We pride ourselves on our ability to offer a comprehensive and user friendly service across all aspects of real estate law. Our expertise includes traditional land law matters, such as conveyancing disputes, mortgages and property finance, restrictive covenants and easements.

We also comprehensively cover all aspects of commercial landlord and tenant law and disputes involving private sector residential leaseholds.

By integrating our property expertise with Chambers’ expertise in planning and public law, we are a natural choice for private developers and those involved in public sector infrastructure projects.

In the wider property law sphere, our property practitioners are regularly involved in contractual disputes relating to property (particularly overage disputes), and cases of nuisance, trespass (including mass trespass) and the property related aspect of professional negligence law.

Individual members also have noted specialist expertise in, amongst other topics, rights of light, party walls, the Telecommunications Code, manorial rights and village greens and enfranchisement.

We have a strong commitment to alternative dispute resolution: our members include acknowledged leaders in the field of rent review arbitration and expert determination.  A number of property practitioners are also qualified as arbitrators, mediators and are on the list of Counsel to be appointed by the Chairman of the Bar Council to act as independent experts.

The most recent Chambers & Partners states that “the barristers are all extremely capable, confident, proactive and commercial. They guide you to the right results and they know their subjects inside-out.” It also states that “the clerks are very approachable, extremely helpful and they make good suggestions.”

The 2018 Legal 500 describes our property barristers as “set apart by their speed of delivery, and willingness to work as a team and develop good relationships’. “.

Currently eight of our silks and 11 of our juniors are rated as leading practitioners in this field.

The 2016 Chambers & Partners UK Bar Awards named Landmark as real estate set of the year whilst Camilla Lamont was named Real Estate Junior of the Year at the 2017 Chambers & Partners UK Bar Awards, as was Tom Weekes QC in 2014 whilst David Holland QC was Real Estate Silk of the year in 2013.

With the recent recruitment of Zia Bhaloo QC and Rupert Cohen, the property team at Landmark is going from strength to strength.
