Andrew Francis writes for The Law Society

In a recent article for The Law Society, “Words matter – interpreting clauses in a lease“, Andrew Francis considers the recent judgment of the Supreme Court in Sara & Hossein Asset Holdings Limited v Blacks Outdoor Retail Limited [2023] UKSC 2 (“Sara & Hossein”) on interpreting clauses in a lease concerning service charge payments.

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.
