Julian has over 15 years’ experience as a lawyer. His guiding philosophy is to help people as best as he can.
Julian has been undertaking Houses in Multiple Occupation and property licensing work for many years and is considered to be a leader in this field having written a book on HMOs -‘The Law of Houses in Multiple Occupation: A Practical Guide to HMO Proceedings’ published by Law Brief Publishing. He can advise on civil penalties, rent repayment orders and prosecutions for all manner of Housing Act and property licensing offences. In the space of some ten years’ he has developed a niche in this area and is recognised by landlords and councils as someone who know his way around this complex and changing area. There is little about HMO and property licensing law including fire regulation rules that he does not know. There are few lawyers who will have dealt with as many HMO / licensing or management regulation matters as Julian and in as many local authorities.
