Contentious Property

Our Real Estate team provides a seamless bespoke service for your property needs.

Property is valuable and people get emotional about it. Often that leads to disputes – whether that is defending you from unfair claims, or enforcing your property rights. We deal with all aspects of contentious property (sometimes called property litigation or property dispute resolution).

Most property disputes involve arguments between landlords and tenants, but we can take on any type of property dispute. Members of our team have shut down crack-houses and illegal raves, advised on major national redevelopments, and even kept access routes open for the Olympic Games. We also have extensive experience of alternative dispute resolution and mediation.

We focus on high-value commercial property disputes. We regularly advise on transactions before they take place to reduce our clients’ exposure to risks. We have decades of expertise. Our team members have represented some of the UK’s largest landlords, as well as banks, and property developers. We also represent high-net worth individuals who want a bespoke service for their property portfolios.

Prettys is a member of Galexy, the international association of lawyers.

We are leaders, not followers. Members of our team regularly provide training to other property professionals, including solicitors and surveyors. Contact us to arrange or attend a training seminar.

We can take on any kind of property dispute for you: click on ‘choose us for’ to see the full list.
