How Lauren can help you

Lauren deals with all housing management related matters, including progressing injunction applications for anti-social behaviour, applications for committal, and a wide range of possession claims, including anti-social behaviour, unlawful occupiers, failed succession, breach of tenancy and sub-letting.


  • Recently obtained an Injunction Order against “Persons Unknown” for a block of flats where a number of visitors were sleeping in the communal stairwells and using this as a hotspot to sell and take drugs. The Injunction Order excluded these visitors from the block, and was supported by a Power of Arrest.
  • Obtained a Global Substitution Order in the High Court for a Registered Provider of Social Housing who had changed their name, but 315 cases were currently issued in the County Court in the former name and therefore needed to be changed before any orders could be made.
  • During lengthy contempt of court proceedings, where the Defendant had been arrested on at least eight occasions for breaching the Injunction Order, proposed a settlement that the client would not seek a custodial sentence if the Defendant agreed to terminate her tenancy agreement. This offer was accepted and therefore saved the client the time and costs of seeking a possession order, which at the time was not possible as possession proceedings were currently stayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
