Keating Chambers has a formidable reputation in property law, and our silks and juniors are invariably able to leverage their unparalleled expertise in construction law disputes.
Members have extensive experience in party wall disputes and issues about rights to light, including injunctions in those fields.
We also have considerable expertise in nuisance claims, including claims in both public and private nuisance, Rylands v Fletcher cases and tree roots claims. Members regularly deal with and claims relating to subsidence (both mining and non-mining), landslips, flood and fire damage.
One of our specialities is nuisance and trespass claims arising out of construction operations, where allegations often concern excessive noise and vibration and overhanging cranes. Members also regularly deal with dilapidation and other property damage claims.
Given our unparalleled experience in construction law matters, we are also able to offer specialist advice and advocacy services in relation to the professional negligence of solicitors, engineers, architects, surveyors, valuers and other property professionals and claims in relation to NHBC warranties.
Not only do our members advise on property matters and appear regularly in the courts and before other tribunals on such matters – both domestically and internationally – but we have also made significant contributions to practitioner texts on property law, having produced several of the RICS Case in Point texts over the years, including those on rights to light and party wall disputes.
