Adil has a broad practice in and regularly advises on landlord and tenant cases and provides clarity to clients in an often-complex area of law. Adil has advised on business tenancies, residential tenancies, disrepair claims, service charge disputes, boundary disputes, housing claims, covenants, property trusts and proprietary estoppel, construction cases, possession claims, adverse possession, wills and probate and Inheritance Act claims.
Adil receives repeat instructions on matters concerning leases and licenses and is well-versed on the law in this area. Recently, Adil successfully opposed a pre-action disclosure application by a landlord regarding a commercial lease and is instructed in defending proceedings by a landlord seeking possession on the basis that a breach by a tenant has caused ‘stigma’ to be associated with the property and as such the breach cannot be remedied, thus seeking possession.
Adil successfully appealed a case involving a boundary dispute between neighbours, with issues such as restrictive covenants and easements, and is appearing at trial on the same in the coming month.
Adil has dealt with numerous possessions claims on both mandatory and discretionary grounds. He is alive to issues that may affect even mandatory claims, such as bankruptcy and breathing space policies, and has successfully manoeuvred around last-minute attempts to avoid possession claims by opponents in the past.
Adil has advised clients in relation to property trusts, wills and probate claims and is looking to grow his practice in this area. He has significant knowledge in this area of law and has had the benefit of working alongside other tenants at chambers to learn from their expertise. Adil has been praised for how he deals with clients in these often emotionally-charged proceedings and is adept at handling sensitive conversations.
