Chambers has an experienced team of barristers who accept instructions from both tenants and landlords in relation to cases involving anti-social behaviour. They have experience of acting for both parties in applications for anti-social behaviour injunctions (under both the old Housing Act 1996 and the new Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014), as well as any subsequent applications for committal. They are also regularly instructed to pursue or defend claims for possession brought on the discretionary ground of anti-social behaviour or the new mandatory ground of breach of an ASBI.
Our barristers can be instructed at short notice on either a private or publicly funded basis. They can advise at any stage on the prospects of success for either party, following a conference if necessary. At court, we can provide representation at preliminary hearings and applications, as well as at trial.
