Andrew Bailey Associate

I am an experienced dispute resolution lawyer and I predominantly represent the firm’s Landlord clients and managing agents in respect of disputed ground rent, service charge and a broad range of breach of lease claims. I am particularly knowledgeable of matters that include issues of leasehold assignment, insolvency and the civil procedure rules.

My caseload and experience spans the County Court, High Court, Court of Appeal and the First-Tier Tribunal (Property Chamber). In addition, I am well versed in the various methods of ADR. I am a commercially minded lawyer with a view to ensuring that my clients achieve the result that they require in a swift and cost effective manner.
 
My role within the firm also encompasses the management and development of a team of fee earners as well as providing specific client training seminars.

Persevere…because on the road to success there is never a crowd on the extra mile.

Notable Cases

  • Recovered service charge arrears of over £25,000.00 on behalf of a Landlord despite the leaseholder having been subject to two bankruptcies with over half of the sum recovered consisting of debts that fell due prior to the bankruptcies;
  • Acted on behalf of an RMC regarding a leaseholder who had sub-let their property to a rogue letting agent who offered room only lets to paying tenants in breach of the lease. We successfully remedied the breach with the removal of the letting agent and regulated future sub-lettings in strict compliance with the lease;
  • Successfully secured the removal of wooden flooring from a leasehold property in an upmarket building in London’s West End that had been installed in direct contravention to the lease and due to issues of noise nuisance it was causing to neighbouring leaseholders.
