Housing & Commercial Property

Kenworthy's Chambers housing and commercial property team deal with all aspects of property; conveyancing and title, commercial leases, the gamut of residential landlord & tenant, rent arrears, possession and disrepair, to anti-social behaviour and unlawful eviction; and from service charges to homelessness and the allocation of social housing.  We have wide experience of judicial review matters and dealing with Human Rights, Equality and Public Law aspects that frequently arise.  We can also advise on the drafting of leases, licences and contractual documentation.

We welcome private property law matters, including mortgage disputes, secured lending, agricultural property, and commercial landlord & tenant matters (see Property & Chancery page).

Cross-Over Expertise

Housing Law cases can often also raise aspects of trusts, immigration and asylum support, family law, welfare benefits, disability, community care and local government law.  As part of a multi-disciplinary set we are well placed to advise on these other issues related to housing.  Thanks to our friendly team-based approach, we regularly call upon the experience of our colleagues in Chambers who specialise in these areas.

Versatile Approach

We act for both claimants and defendants, believing that this ensures the highest standards of advocacy, enabling our clients to benefit from advocates who have seen such disputes from both sides.

Service to our Clients

We are proud of our professional, approachable and helpful housing law service.  We can respond to emergencies out of hours.  In that event, please contact our Practice Manager, Maria Rushworth, on 07971 564644.


Members of the team give seminars, lectures and training in all areas of property, housing and social welfare work.  We present CPD-accredited practitioner seminars throughout the year, both as part of Chambers Lecture Series and also in-house at solicitor firms.
