Richard is a lawyer within the housing team and handles cases relating to housing advice and homelessness; including private and legal aid funded work.

Richard keeps his training and qualifications up to date and regularly attends courses on issues relating to Housing Advice and Representation Training.

Housing is a vast subject and is hard to single out specialisms, however I take on homelessness challenges, unlawful evictions, possession proceedings, occupation orders and housing disrepair. I also help at court alongside private work, setting up tenancies and landlord possession proceedings.
