Property in Practice 004: Right to Light issues

Location: Serle Court, 6 New Square, Lincolns Inn, London, WC2A 3QS

Christopher Stoner KC and Andrew Francis will present the fourth briefing in our Property in Practice series over breakfast, 'Right to Light issues' on Thursday, 8th February. 

About the speakers:

Chris specialises in both property litigation and the regulatory/disciplinary aspects of sports law. He undertakes work in all aspects of property litigation encompassing real property, and both residential and commercial landlord and tenant work. In the field of real property Chris has developed a particular specialism in the law relating to canals and water, which work often involves consideration of difficult issues relating to riparian rights and ancient title documentation as well as the understanding and application of aged private Acts of Parliament.  Chris has acted extensively for British Waterways and its statutory successor the Canal & River Trust, and also for other public authorities as well as for private individuals on canal and water based matters. 

Chris also regularly advises and litigates on registration, option, easement and covenant issues. As a corollary of his work relating to waterways, Chris also has expertise in advising on Human Rights issues relating to property interests.

Andrew’s practice has an emphasis on real property law. He is recognised as a leading authority on the law of restrictive covenants affecting freehold land, and on the law of rights of light. He has been instructed in many of the major cases in these areas of law in the last three decades. He is the author, and also the co-author of text books on covenants, rights of light and private rights of way.
