As a senior lawyer in the property litigation team, Simon handles the full range of property disputes. His many years of experience mean he is sought after for his in depth knowledge and expertise.
Simon takes a thorough and proactive approach to protect clients’ interests when dealing with commercial property repossession; residential property repossession; enforcing lease covenants; trespass; recovery of service charges; property negligence claims and applications by business tenants for new leases.
Simon regularly works with landlords and tenants on claims to recover possession under the Housing Act 1988, either because of breaches of the terms of the tenancy agreement or simply because the landlord requires the return of the property.
He advises on business properties where the tenant has not been complying with their lease terms or where the tenant is threatened with action by their landlord.
Simon also helps with the renewal of business leases whose security is protected under the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954.
Simon advises on the recovery of possession of commercial premises from trespassers, boundary disputes/ rights of way, claims for disrepair/dilapidations and service charge recovery or disputes.
Simon studied law at Manchester University. After qualifying, he worked for a number of firms in central London before joining Turner & Debenhams (now Debenhams Ottaway) in 2004.
Simon is a member of the Property Litigation Association.

Absolutely excellent service. I dealt with Simon Tucker on a dispute I was having with a letting agent. Simon gave great, practical advice, which ensured the matter reached the conclusion in the way I wanted in a reasonable timeframe. I found Debenhams Ottaway to be very responsive and trustworthy – their main concern was what was right for me as a client, not how much money they were going to make from the work.
I just want to say thanks so much for your wonderful services.
