Nikki advises on a wide range of commercial and residential property litigation matters for landlords, tenants, freeholders and private clients. Nikki previously worked as a commercial property manager and has a good understanding of the property industry from a commercial as well as a legal perspective.

Nikki deals with almost all issues affecting commercial and residential property including contested and uncontested lease renewals, arrears recovery, possession claims (forfeiture and S21/S8 notices), enforcement, service charge disputes, nuisance, breaches of covenants and dilapidations.

Nikki also manages more junior fee earners in dealing with debt recovery for a large landlord’s commercial and residential portfolio to ensure all cases are actively managed and dealt with efficiently and cost effectively. This includes advising on the best means of recovering the arrears depending on the facts of each case.
