Disabled employees should not be denied the ability to engage in strategies and mechanisms which help to cope with the effects of their condition simply because they inconvenience other staff. Paul Burton looks at a recent case where disability discrimination was disputed.
Niki draws on her considerable experience in this specialist area to head up the Leasehold Property Team, representing freeholders, leaseholders and property management companies throughout the UK.
Having worked in this niche area of property law since 2006, Niki specialises in residential leasehold property matters. She advises freeholders and leaseholders (as well as head leaseholders and management companies) alike.
Niki has often been described as ‘candid’ by her clients as she likes to explain things in a straight-forward way to save client’s time and money.
The team has considerable expertise in lease extensions, enfranchisements, right to manage and right of first refusal matters with two fee earners specialising in this area. Few, if any, other local firms have this volume of resource dedicated to this specialism.
- Lease extensions
- Drafting new leases
- Buying / selling the freehold of blocks of flats (either via Enfranchisement or Right of First Refusal)
- Right to Manage
- Licences for Alterations
- Deeds of Variation
- Providing guidance and interpretation of lease covenants
- Generally advising freeholders and leaseholders in relation to transactional and interpretational matters
Most of Niki’s spare time is spent exercising her extremely spoilt horse, HiJack and her labrador, Roma. She rides HiJack 4 or 5 times a week and tries to compete as often as she can. Niki loves walking Roma with her husband and enjoying the countryside local to where they live.
If Niki wasn’t a lawyer, she likes to think she would be an interior designer and loves getting stuck into DIY and gardening, when time allows.
Excellent service, carefully thought through advice. Regular updates provided without the need to chase. Professional and proactive. Many thanks

Communication was excellent - the matter was completed in a timely manner.
Mr Evans & Ms Pullen
Niki helped me extend my lease, both Niki and Sharon made the process very straight forward we will definately recommend your services to any of our friends/relatives - thank you all.
It was a bit frustrating towards the end, but Sophie and Jennifer were always on hand to reassure me. Niki was the same dealing with the lease. They were all very friendly and I thought they were excellent.
Thank you so much for all you have done, you have really made the process stress free for me, I really was dreading the whole process.
