Banking & Financial Services Profile

Gavin undertakes a significant amount of work in the context of secured lending. He has appeared on a number of contested applications for charging orders and orders for sale. In undertaking mortgage work for various lenders he has advised upon and argued points concerning overriding interests and the question of priority. On the other side, he has advised mortgagors of their rights, for instance as against mortgagees in possession, and as to their prospects of avoiding possession or having it suspended under the Administration of Justice Acts.

Gavin has experience of arguments under the Consumer Credit Act 1974, including those alleging an unfair relationship.

Gavin intends to continue to build up his work in this area, particularly in respect of disputes concerning secured lending and the exercise of chargees' rights in that context. He is particularly interested in the role of equitable claims and remedies in respect of such cases.
