Proprietary Estoppel

Our Proprietary Estoppel Expertise

Proprietary Estoppel is a means by which someone may become entitled to a ‘proprietary right’, where the normal formalities have not been observed. It arises where one party is given an assurance by the other party which he then relies on to his detriment.

Members of Tanfield are recognised as leaders in the field of Proprietary Estoppel. Our barristers have extensive experience of Proprietary Estoppel work and regularly represent clients in claims where this issue arises.

Our Proprietary Estoppel Clients

Tanfield has an enviable reputation for Real Property work. Its clients include leading specialist law firms, as well as both large and small landowners, property developers and commercial organisations.
