Daniel’s work

Misrepresentation/Consumer Credit claims
Daniel guided a number of clients through the litigation process where they had been sold plots of land with the assurance that the sites would be granted planning permission; commonly referred to as ‘land banking’. Due to the plots being purchased by the use of a credit card, Daniel was able to recover the amounts invested by the clients, plus interest and costs, from the client’s lender.

Landlord & Tenant
Daniel advised a group of leaseholders upon the making of an application to the First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) for the appointment of a manager to deal with the day-to-day running of their block of flats due to an absent freeholder.
