The Property Litigation Association


My approach to work is based on a few simple questions. What does my client want to achieve? Is this achievable? If so, what can I do to help my client achieve this outcome and will it be cost-effective for them?

It’s essential for me to understand my client’s expectations and position when taking on their case. Understanding what my clients seek and value puts me in a position to be open and honest with whether their desired outcome is legally viable. If not, I will tell my client precisely that and propose an alternative in line with their wishes.

Additionally, I keep up to date with current legislation and court procedures to deliver accurate and current legal advice.


The gratification that I get from helping people achieve positive outcomes at some of the most vulnerable times of their life is, in my eyes, what makes being a solicitor such an enjoyable job. Specialising in landlord and tenant property law, I see the struggles of landlords and tenants alike, particularly throughout the past years of COVID.

I chose to work at Britton and Time, so I could work in a proactive environment that provides exceptional service to each client.


Sophie holds a degree in Law from the Open University. She later completed her Legal Practice Course (LPC) at the University of Guildford before going on to qualify as a solicitor at MW Solicitors.

Sophie has a wide range of experience in property litigation, specialising in landlord and tenant disputes both commercial and residential, eviction, boundary disputes, commercial property and forfeiture.

Sophie’s legal areas.

Landlord and Tenant



Notable cases.

Advised a landlord of multiple HMOs on the eviction of tenants under Section 8 on nuisance grounds, breaches of license including use of the properties as brothels, social disturbances and repeated illegal activities.

Successfully evicted a tenant under Section 21, while simultaneously and unusually securing costs above the standard fixed cost award for her client.

Acted on behalf of the executor of an estate where Sophie served a Notice to Quit on the beneficiaries of the estate who were improperly occupying the property of the deceased. Successfully claimed damages on a mesne profits basis at market rate for trespassing on expiry of the notice.

Successfully negotiated a resolution to a neighbour dispute where the neighbour had carried out faulty works leading to a private nuisance and loss of enjoyment for Sophie’s client.

Advised a client on the forfeiture of a large commercial property in the context of COVID, with questions over enforceability of the terms of the lease and whether or not it was void at law, while under the restrictions imposed by the Coronavirus Act 2020 and against a highly aggressive tenant.

Successfully enforced the terms of a verbal contract with an option to purchase at a fixed price on behalf of the prospective purchaser, on grounds of unjust enrichment and quantum meruit.

Advised multiple clients who were considering moving forward on claims for adverse possession on the merits of their potential claim, successfully saving them thousands of pounds.

Charlie Rossiter

"I would definitely recommend their services"

Sophie, the advisor that took on my case, was very attentive and explained everything very clearly to me right from the start. She was always easy to get in touch with, which was key as I was busy with an international move, and was able to manage my expectations throughout.
