Barrister, Falcon Chambers
Kester Lees practices in all aspects of commercial, residential and agricultural real property law including mortgages, receiverships, trusts and property insolvency, as well as other property issues including restrictive covenants, easements, adverse possession, land registration boundary disputes and property related professional negligence. Kester’s practice also encompasses all aspects of landlord and tenant law, including a wide variety of disputes arising under the 1954 Act, the Rent Acts, the Housing Acts and enfranchisement legislation.
Kester regularly appears in the High Court, Upper Tribunal (Land Chamber), First Tier Tribunal (Property Chamber), the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal and County Courts across the country. Recent disputes include mortgage possession, rectification of the Register and mortgage fraud.
Kester appeared in the Supreme Court in M&S v BNP  UKSC 72 (led by Guy Fetherstonhaugh QC) which is the leading case on implied terms, break clauses and the apportionment of rent and more recently was the landlord's retained junior in the Canary Wharf v Lehman litigation concerning a £500m+ claim for repudiatory breach of a lease.
Barrister, Falcon Chambers
Stephanie Tozer was called to the Bar 20 years ago, and has specialised in all aspects of property law (including, in particular, mortgage-related disputes) since then. She appeared in the House of Lords in West Bromwich v Wilkinson, which settled the controversy over the limitation period for shortfall claims. She has appeared in substantial mortgage fraud trials, in both the County Court and the High Court. Other examples of her Court work include Bower Terrace Student Accommodation v Space Student Living, where receivers obtained interim injunctions against a third party in possession of the security under a management agreement.
She is rated in the top tier for property litigation in all the leading directories.
She has a particular interest in land registration and priority disputes. She is a part time judge of the First-Tier Tribunal (Property Chamber)(Land Registration), which requires her to determine mortgage related disputes. Often the applicant claims that a document (usually a transfer) has been forged so the register should be rectified so as to remove a legal charge, but she has also determined a case where the applicant sought to set aside a legal charge for duress.

Much mortgage litigation is either about enforcing the security or resolving some issue as to whether the security is effective. Members of Falcon Chambers are all experts in property litigation, so are well placed to assist with mortgage litigation. Members of chambers regularly undertake work on behalf of mortgagees, mortgagors and receivers, ranging from mortgage possession hearings in the County Court to appeals raising complicated issues of principle at the highest levels. Recent high profile cases include McDonald v McDonald, CA and SC: a receiver can serve a s 21 notice on the borrower’s tenant. Members have also conducted substantial trials in mortgage fraud cases, dealt with cases raising issues of undue influence/duress, and regularly consider questions of subrogation/alternative remedies where the security is defective and priority questions arise. They also have expertise in Consumer Credit Act issues.
Falcon Chambers are a set of 10 QCs and 30 “junior” barristers, based near the Temple in London. Their members write the leading text: Fisher & Lightwood’s Law of Mortgage. Many members sit as part time judges. Their former members include Lord Neuberger (President of the Supreme Court).
