Kuljit has established herself at the forefront of the social housing bar. Kuljit is recognised for her thorough knowledge of the law, exceptional advocacy skills and tactical awareness. She has an excellent understanding of her client’s needs. Her broader practice also includes community care and Court of Protection work and her practice covers policy matters as well as advice in individual cases. She is an expert on anti-social behaviour law and her book ‘Cornerstone on Anti-Social Behaviour: The New Law’ has received glowing reviews. She is the ‘go-to’ person for issues relating to Public Space Protection Orders, complex or high profile ASB matters and the other powers introduced by the ASBCPA 2014. Kuljit has recently advised the Mayor on his Housing Strategy for London, and was instructed in Tachie v Welwyn Hatfield BC  EWHC 3972 (QB);  PTSR 66, a case which concerned the contracting out of homelessness functions. Her housing practice covers homelessness, claims for possession (all grounds), housing management issues (including disrepair, contested successions, unlawful subletting, ‘Right to Buy’ disputes), unlawful eviction, benefit fraud and the investigation and prosecution of offences, houses in multiple occupation, service charge disputes, mental health and Equality Act 2010 points. Her expertise in mental health issues, community care law and Court of Protection work means she is ideal for cases where there is a crossover between the three disciplines.
