42BR Barristers is a leading set of Chambers, specialising in all aspects of commercial and residential real estate litigation and ADR.

42BR has extensive experience of issues of disrepair, residential licensing, service charges, residential management, and enfranchisement for private and public sector clients. Our business/property and housing teams assist public authorities, landlords and tenants with lease extensions, collective enfranchisements, the right to manage and tenants’ rights of first refusal.

42BR holds places on over 20 client panels, often for multiple practice areas. 


42BR’s housing barristers include two part-time judges and a founder member of the Social Housing Law Association (SHLA).

This highly experienced group appears in, and advises on, not only the common types of housing dispute, but also more specialised disputes such as HMO licensing and licence breaches, environmental law and discrimination.

We regularly act for local authorities, housing associations, housing trusts, RMCs, portfolio and private landlords, as well as individuals.  We can also provide clear tactical advice and representation at very short notice, such as when seeking, or responding to, injunctions.


42BR offers advice and representation on all aspects of owning, managing, using and developing real property and land. Our clients include construction companies, property developers and other businesses, local authorities and private individuals, and social landlords and their tenants.

The property group has barristers at all levels of experience and spanning many specialist areas of property law, so we are well placed to handle your matter effectively, whether it is a major High Court dispute or simpler neighbourhood boundary disagreement.

Property disputes can quickly spiral in cost, and we make full use of alternative dispute resolution where appropriate, through the first-tier tribunals, through arbitration and mediation. Our barristers also represent clients in professional negligence hearings.

As members of the Property Bar Association, Chancery Bar Association and Social Housing Law Association, our barristers actively contribute to professional understanding within the property law field, via 42BR’s series of seminars, webinars, articles and training events.
