Kirsty accepts instructions across a wide range of property matters including both residential and business possession claims. Kirsty has extensive experience of routine and contested possession hearings, including matters running all the way to trial. She is regularly instructed to draft pleadings in a property law context, and to provide formal advice in respect of the same.
Recent popery work Kirsty has undertaken includes:

- Successfully making an application to suspend a warrant of possession.
- Advising a landlord in relation to available options in circumstances where the tenant was subject to a breathing space moratorium.
- Advising investors in respect of their ability to argue that they have an equitable lien over a property in a development that was never completed.
