Examples of recent cases

Nigel has recently:

  • helped a commercial client negotiate a lease from their existing landlord which allowed them to remain in their current premises, despite having been served with a notice to quit, so that they could continue to trade while their new premises were being completed;
  • obtained a statutory declaration from a market stall holder in London which enabled them to sell their market pitch despite the fact their legal entitlement to the pitch had not been registered in circumstances where it should have been; and
  • successfully negotiated a license on behalf of the buyers of a house which enabled them to move in before legal completion of their purchase following the unexpected death of the seller and the consequent need for completion to be delayed until a grant of probate had been obtained.
