Richard Owen Associate

I act for landlords and management companies in respect of a variety of property management issues.

My clients range from extremely large managing agents to resident management companies.
 
I have extensive experience of various types of First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) applications as well as County Court work.

Do not wait to strike till the iron is hot; but make it hot by striking.
