I’m a Partner in our Residential department based in the West End. I specialise in advising on statutory and capital valuations of Central London (Mayfair, Portman Village, Belgravia and Chelsea) residential properties, particularly in the field of Leasehold Enfranchisement.
I have worked in the commercial and residential sectors since 2005 and over the years have been involved in valuations for secure lending and tax purposes, party wall matters, CPOs, specialist valuations, property management, development and valuations of investment portfolios. My work also involves the preparation of proofs of evidence for First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) hearings together with giving evidence as an expert witness on valuation issues for the freeholders before the tribunal.
I provide valuation advice to private clients, charities and major London Estates relating to matters under Leasehold Reform Act 1967 (as amended) and the Leasehold Reform Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 (as amended). I negotiate premiums for lease extensions/freehold purchases and clients’ recoverable costs. My experience ranges from valuing a £55 million London townhouse in Belgravia to negotiating a premium in excess of £13 million for collective enfranchisement in Marylebone.
