Property litigation is one of the core areas of Peter’s practice. Chambers is renowned for its expertise in the field of secured lending and Peter has extensive experience of acting for banks, building societies and other lenders, as well as for borrowers, in disputes concerning the enforcement and validity of mortgages (many such disputes now involving issues of subrogation). However, his expertise is not limited to mortgages; he has extensive experience of disputes concerning, for example, challenges to the validity of contracts for the sale of land, business and residential tenancies; agricultural holdings, easements; restrictive covenants; overage agreements; party walls; and the payment of fees for the conduct of rating appeals. Moreover, the boundaries of Peter’s core practice are not rigid. Many sets of instructions also require thorough expertise in other branches of Chancery work, with the relationship between property law and insolvency law becoming increasingly important.
Within the field of property litigation, Peter has acted for a wide range of clients including banks and other mortgage lenders, developers, institutional landlords, business and agricultural tenants, investors in portfolios of residential ground rents, local authorities and office holders such as the court appointed manager of a farming partnership. Equally varied are the types of professional client for which he has worked, these including City solicitors, large regional firms, smaller specialist or niche practices and corporate in-house lawyers. In appropriate cases, Peter is happy to accept instructions under the Public Access Scheme.
