Sarah is a Senior Associate in the Property Litigation team with experience in all areas of contentious residential and commercial property matters.
She regularly advises on service charges, possession claims and the recovery of land from squatters, breaches of lease covenants and professional negligence. Sarah has a particular interest in real property matters, such as the modification of easements, boundary disputes and trusts for land, including claims under the Trusts of Land & Appointment of Trustees Act 1996. Most recently her practice has involved the provision of fire safety and costs recovery guidance, often in relation to cladding issues.
With a friendly, down to earth and approachable manner Sarah acts for a broad range of clients including landlords and tenants, mixed use estates countrywide, developers and charities.
Sarah trained at Alan Edwards & Co in Notting Hill, now Russell-Cooke. She qualified into their Litigation team in December 2014 and subsequently moved to Forsters in September 2015 to specialise in Property Litigation.
We reported in June about changes to the residential possession procedure as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. Last week the government implemented further changes and we look at the current rules.
