Sarah joined the Dispute Resolution Team in 1998 and works alongside Jeremy Ferris in the Property Dispute Team.   Sarah was admitted as a Chartered Legal Executive in May 2015.

Sarah works closely with letting agents to assist them and their clients where a dispute has arisen between a landlord and tenant and Court proceedings are necessary to obtain possession.

Sarah also works for private individuals and companies who own rental property some with one property and some with multiple properties.  Sarah can deal with everything from advising a new landlord of their obligations towards their tenant and drawing up tenancy agreements, to terminating a tenancy for a landlord by the giving of notice and thereafter issuing Court proceedings to obtain a court order for possession.

Sarah is also able to assist tenants where the landlord may be in breach of its obligations by failing to repair a property or carry out the necessary safety checks.  In addition, Sarah can provide advice where the deposit has not been protected by the landlord.

Alongside the above work, Sarah also deals with other types of property dispute such as neighbour or boundary disputes and can also deal with claims relating to adverse possession of land.

Sarah’s approach to dealing with clients is down to earth by giving clear, practical and easy to understand advice.
