Property Bar Association

Christy Burzio joined as a tenant in September 2023 having successfully completed her probationary tenancy at Tanfield.

She has a growing property practice and particular experience of housing disrepair, dilapidations, possession, boundaries, nuisance, easements, landlord and tenant and construction.

Christy already has considerable experience in fast-track and multi-track trials. She is extremely thorough in her approach and always client focused.

Before coming to the Bar, Christy enjoyed a successful academic career which culminated in her doctoral studies at King’s College. She has lectured at Russell Group Universities and has been published worldwide.

In May 2022, Christy was one of three barristers chosen to represent the UK Bar on the Florida Civil Advocacy Course led by Rebecca Tuck KC.

On 3 November 2022, Christy was appointed to the Bar Standard Board’s Independent Decision-Making Body. This body hears cases of apparent breaches of the BSB Handbook and administrative decisions related to licences and authorisations. She has been appointed for a three-year term.

Notable Cases

  • Pincus v Johal (1) and Venus Property Holdings (2) (2022) Christy successfully obtained a mandatory and prohibitory injunction on an interim basis against the freehold company and an individual as the Respondents jointly interfered with the Applicant’s commercial right of way by demolishing a platform. The Court ordered the platform be reinstated, prohibited any further interference and awarded her clients over £13,000 in costs.
  • Siddiqi v Lechus (2022) Christy acted for the Respondent on appeal regarding a possession order. The matter was adjourned due to submitted faults in the Applicant’s appeal with a favourable costs order for her client. The matter later settled.
  • Fernandez v Iceland Foods (2021) Christy acted for the Appellant. The matter concerned the standard to be applied in seeking a second opinion when faced with an unfavourable expert. The case received media attention,
  • Nevins v Kinsat Enterprises Limited (2021) Christy acted in a dispute concerning a bridging loan which was in excess of £1 million and had remained unpaid for multiple years. The matter settled.
