What they say about themselves:

Charles Russell offers a full range of property services from assisting with landlord and tenant issues, acquisitions and disposals to advising on property finance, construction and planning issues. We work with a range of leaseholder-owned landlord companies as well as companies which manage a mix of leasehold and freehold properties.

We think it is important that clients receive a personal, cost-effective service and we are always available to answer your questions or concerns. We are completely transparent with our fees and costs, and offer fixed fee charges for some service charge arrears recovery work. Other work is based on hourly rates, although we clearly and regularly communicate cost levels to our clients.

"Understanding Relationships" is at the centre of everything we do. Through understanding the needs of clients, we deliver tailored legal solutions and establish and maintain mutually successful working relationships. Central to this approach is our highly praised client management programme. Built around regular service reviews with clients, it ensures our services are adjusted to meet changing needs.

As one of the largest property litigation teams in the UK we have extensive expertise in the commercial, residential and mixed-use sectors. This makes us unusual in the property sector, and means that when problems occur, you can trust us to put them right as quickly and cost effectively as possible.
