Profile / Experience

I am a Solicitor in the housing department at Duncan Lewis Solicitors. I am based in the firm's Harrow office where I work as part of director Manjinder Kaur Atwal's team.

With a background in the not for profit advice sector and a training contract covering seats in social welfare law, including housing and debt, welfare benefits and employment, I qualified as a solicitor in 2008 and thereafter specialised in housing and debt.

I have in the course of my career represented some very vulnerable clients including those with mental illnesses or learning disabilities and clients who were street homeless. I carry out a varied caseload of housing matters, often with a community care element, including homelessness reviews and appeals, defending possession proceedings, applications to suspend warrants of possession, disrepair claims, public law matters and anti-social behaviour injunctions.

I represent tenants of all tenures, local authority, housing association and private, and in mortgage possession proceedings, homeowners and prior to joining Duncan Lewis Solicitors, I had spent time representing mainly housing association and local authority landlords, usually in anti-social behaviour matters, though my work extended also to non-contentious advice on tenancy and licence agreements and on policies, including anti-social behaviour and lettings policies.

I particularly enjoy defending tenants and homeowners on the county court housing possession duty scheme where I have been able to assist tenants and homeowners in defending possession claims in court on the day of their hearing. I find that the work is fast paced with a quick turnover of clients and an immediate tangible outcome.
