KBG Chambers are pleased to announce the launch of our Property Law Team. A number of practitioners within Chambers have come together to create the dedicated team. Supported by our experienced Civil Clerk, Jamie Kyte, members of the Property Law team can provide specialist advice and advocacy services to clients throughout the region and beyond. Chambers offers wide expertise in all aspects of the law of property, both contentious and non-contentious. Members of the practice group regularly appear in a range of tribunals from the County Court to the Court of Appeal, including all divisions of the Property Chambers First Tier Tribunal (successors to The Adjudicator, HM Land Registry, Leasehold Valuation Tribunals, Rent Tribunals etc) and the Upper Tribunal.

Members of the team are regularly instructed in the following areas:-

  • Matters of registered and unregistered conveyancing
  • Town and Village Greens, and Commons
  • Adverse Possession
  • Land Options
  • Easements (rights of way, pipes and drainage, support etc)
  • Nuisance and Trespass
  • Co-ownership (Co-habitation) and interests in the matrimonial and quasi-matrimonial home
  • Resulting and constructive trusts, and proprietary estoppel
  • Contracts for the sale of land
  • Restrictive Covenants
  • Boundary Disputes
  • Property related professional negligence claims involving solicitors and surveyors
  • Service charge disputes

All aspects of commercial, agricultural and residential landlord and tenant are dealt with in Chambers, including:

  • The lease / license distinction
  • Enforcements of covenants against assignment
  • Termination (including forfeiture and relief, exercise of break clauses etc)
  • Housing disrepair, unlawful eviction and possession
  • Covenants on assignment
  • Business lease renewals
  • Commercial dilapidations
  • Agricultural holdings and farm business tenancies

“Our members are known for their ability to provide excellent advice and advocacy services throughout the region and beyond,” Rawdon Crozier, Head of the Civil Team. Members of the team are happy to attend conferences across Devon & Cornwall.

Deni Mathews, Head of Chambers, described the recent launch of the Property team, as “An exciting development in the South West, there is a real local demand in this developing area of law. Chambers will continue to serve clients in Cornwall and Devon. In the past a significant amount of work in this area has been sent out of the South West, we now offer a full range of advice and advocacy and a competitive alternative for those seeking assistance in this area of work.”
