Senior Associate & Solicitor

Sarah Schooling

“I enjoy what I do and as part of a team with a broad spectrum of knowledge, we are able to provide great advice. Delivering the right outcomes for our clients is key to their satisfaction, we know that, and it is important to us. We are not afraid of asking what our clients’ want from us and going that extra distance to provide it.”

Sarah is a senior associate & solicitor within the Housing Management team and has been advising and providing court representation to both public and private sector landlords for over 18 years.

Sarah co-leads a team of three other lawyers working with clients to provide advice on a range of housing management and property issues including:

  • Disrepair claims
  • Anti Social Behaviour
  • Social Housing Fraud
  • Injunction and possession claims
  • Property and land disputes including adverse possession and Access to Neighbouring Land applications
  • Traveller sites
  • Leasehold, Shared Ownership and Estate Management disputes

When not advising clients on specific legal matters, Sarah is out training the staff of registered providers to become more efficient and knowledgeable within the area of housing management. Sarah believes it is an important part of adding value for our clients, in that by learning along the way, they feel more able to deal with a matter should it arise again in the future.

Sarah also advises on non-contentious matters such as:

  • drafting tenancy agreements
  • rent setting
  • notices
  • deeds
  • terms of demotion
  • Policies & Procedures (P&Ps)

How can you deal with illegal or unauthorised encampments?

Posted on 20th July 2021 in Rural Property & Countryside Matters, Parks, Affordable Housing
