Real Estate Profile

Gavin has a strong and developing practice in property law, which accounts for a significant proportion of his overall caseload. Recently, he has advised upon and pleaded cases involving trespass, respecting nuisance and property damage, and concerning TOLATA/co-ownership claims. In trusts of land work, he regularly considers the application of the 1996 Act and various related issues, such as of equitable accounting, overriding interests and rules of priority. Other areas in which he is developing expertise include statutory formalities for the disposition of interests and the related operation of proprietary estoppel. He has also advised upon potential rectification of the Register.

Gavin has addressed issues arising between neighbouring landowners, such as in relation to easements, rights of access and similar.

In landlord and tenant work, Gavin's practice covers both commercial and residential cases. He is often concerned with questions arising in respect of business leases, service charges, tenancy assignment and the legal consequences of informal arrangements (including for possession purposes). In court, he has experience of possession actions, rent arrear and service charge claims, forfeiture proceedings and disputed contractual costs applications.
