  • Estate management for both landlords and tenants including advising on all aspects of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954.
  • Relocation and exit strategies (including serving break notices and managing dilapidations).
  • Obtaining possession of property (including from trespassers, by forfeiture and for the purposes of development).
  • Recovery of rent arrears and other covenant enforcement.

  • Property related insolvency issues.

Laura was described recently by a client in the 2021 Edition of the Legal 500 as “one of the most technically able and thorough solicitors I have come across, she is always completely on top of her material and gives no quarter to the opposition at all…a real class act“.

Laura is a member of the Property Litigation Association and sits on the Northern Committee.
