My role

I provide specialist advice and assistance for housing management issues, policies and procedures adopted by housing organisations. I also conduct and manage Section 11 disrepair compensations claims, statutory nuisance prosecutions, squatter possession proceedings and complex possession claims and regularly advocate in county and magistrate courts.

My experience

My experience has been built from advising on, and managing, anti-social behaviour cases, including injunctions, demotions, possessions and ASBOs. My speaking engagements have included The Social Landlords Crime and Nuisance Group and Housemark.

From my experience I also provide in-house training on a wide-spectrum of housing management issues for clients, including ASB updates and advocacy in possession proceedings amongst other estate management topics.
