Our specialist team

When it comes to property disputes there is no substitute for experience and expertise, and when property disputes arise it is essential to have advice from solicitors who specialise in this area. Our dedicated team at Darwin Gray has a reputation for being “excellent” and resolving “issues in a timely fashion” (Chambers).

Our Property Disputes team is headed by partner  Rhodri Lewis, with over 20 years’ experience in property disputes. Rhodri has been described by Chambers as “first class” and “a tenacious litigator”.

The team also includes partner Donald Gray along with solicitors Kate Heaney and Patrick Murphy, who add further strength in depth to our team.

Property disputes can arise in a number of ways and can involve freehold or leasehold property, commercial or residential property and development or agricultural land. Our team’s range of expertise has included cases involving disrepair and dilapidations, breaches of covenant, service charges, easements, rights over land and boundaries.

In many cases seeking advice at an early stage means potential future issues can be identified and avoided – as can future costs. However, if litigation is required there is no better team to have on your side.
