Our Housing team is led by Andrew Arden QC, the author or editor of the leading books on this area of law, including the Housing Encyclopaedia, the Housing Law Reports and the Journal of Housing Law, Homelessness & Allocations and the Manual of Housing Law and Quiet Enjoyment: Protection Against Rogue Landlords. There is no need to cite all the accolades Andrew has received over the years but a selection give some idea of his pre-eminence in this field:

“The godfather of housing law”

“A genius who wins and wins and wins”

“Head and shoulders above anyone else in housing litigation”

Andrew has appeared in over 130 reported cases, 28 of them in the Supreme Court/House of Lords and is delighted now to be practising from Nexus.

We also have strength in depth, so that cases of any seriousness and complexity can be dealt with. Both lay clients and solicitors can be assured of the highest quality representation and advice. A number of our team also had “pre-Bar” careers in the property sector and so are able to bring their practical knowledge of the sector to bear when representing or advising clients.

The majority of our housing team are also qualified to accept direct access instructions and either we or our clerks are happy to speak to members of the public to discuss suitability and fees.

We act for both tenant and landlord clients.
