Chris Coney has practised in the field of property law from the beginning of practice, at 1 Temple Gardens, where he cut his teeth on the Rent Acts, and acted for most of the large London residential estates. He is still instructed by solicitors who first instructed him over 25 years ago.
His practice includes commercial and residential landlord and tenant, covenants, rights of way, neighbour disputes and property related matters (in particular, property related professional negligence). It also includes general common law and Chancery. He appeared for UCB in the raft of appeals to the House of Lords known as Royal Bank of Scotland v. Etridge.
Chris has regularly been instructed by local authorities, and, until its abolition, was frequently instructed on behalf of the Secretary of State in appeals to the Registered Homes Tribunal.
