The Equality Act 2010 places a number of duties on landlords and managers of property in England and Wales to avoid discriminating against disabled people.
Senior associate Ed Cracknell appears in The Sunday Times Home Help advising on whether the equality act can be used by tenants to make physical changes to a block.
Ed specialises in property litigation and property dispute resolution. His areas of expertise include landlord and tenant disputes, rent and service charge recovery, possession proceedings, business lease renewals, dilapidations claims and contentious leasehold enfranchisement. Other areas of expertise include adverse possession, restrictive covenants and rights of way. Ed also advises in relation to the renewal and termination of telecoms leases.
