About Julian Hunt MA (Cantab)
Julian is one of the country’s foremost barristers in the area of Housing Act law and property licensing matters. Julian has particular expertise in relation to the law of Houses of Multiple Occupation, which encompasses far more rental properties than landlords and property owners realise.
Julian got into HMO law many years ago, spotting this as a growth area, and has written the leading book in this field.
In Housing Act related cases, Julian can prevent the matter going to court and thus frequently avoids the likelihood that a landlord or agent will obtain a criminal record.
Often the outcome will be a complete exoneration or a much-reduced civil penalty in cases where the landlord, owner or agent is culpable, either through ignorance or deliberate breach of the Housing Act and related legislation and regulation.
Julian is one of the most experienced barristers in this highly complex legal area.
Julian offers preferential rates to clients of Landlords Defence because of the level of expertise and advice applied to cases.
