Chancery PII

The Property Section covers commercial, residential and landlord and tenant law, including planning, tax, environment and fraud. We give you access to the best practice support you need, when, where and how you want it, on the issues that matter to you. From flood risk and conveyancing fraud, to working with lenders, and from break clauses and capital allowances to outcomes-focused regulation.

The purpose of the Section is to be the key player in:

  • Understanding the property market
  • Anticipating trends
  • Finding solutions for the profession in vision, leadership and training
