Ricky Coleman

Associate Solicitor

Ricky has specialised in Landlord and Tenant matters since qualifying as a solicitor in 2016. His work has a particular focus on leasehold enfranchisement and he acts for landlords, tenants and residents’ management companies.

Leasehold enfranchisement is a technical area which can be awash with procedural difficulties and delays. Ricky prides himself on forming a tailored strategy from the outset, taking into account the unique circumstances of each case.

Ricky regularly advises on:

  • Statutory lease extensions and voluntary lease extensions
  • Collective enfranchisement of the freehold of blocks of flats
  • Disposal of freeholds under the tenants Right of First Refusal
  • Right to Manage claims
  • Applications for consent to alterations
  • Service charge disputes
  • Applications for Tribunal appointed managers under the Landlord and Tenant Act 1987
  • Breach of lease claims for both landlords and tenants
  • Company law issues affecting resident management companies

Ricky’s work has included high value lease extensions involving Prime Central London properties and complex cases involving missing landlords. He has also been involved with Right to Manage and freehold enfranchisement claims involving large blocks of 30 or more flats. For cases of a litigious nature, Ricky conducts his own advocacy where possible in the First-tier Tribunal and County Court, drawing on his property litigation background.

For a number of years Ricky has volunteered at a local leaseholders' advice clinic and was also responsible for setting up a pro bono housing law drop-in service alongside the Law School at the University of Sussex. Outside of work, Ricky is a member of a local running club and can mostly be found taking part in or following various sports including cycling, skiing and endurance events.

"Ricky Coleman dealt with my case very efficiently, whilst also having the very important quality of explaining things to me very simply, and effectively at a time when I was really stressed. Would be more than happy to recommend him to anyone, he was far more helpful to me than my other solicitor! Thank you Ricky."
