• I am a housing management lawyer and a member of the firm's Housing and Property Dispute Resolution team. I specialise in all aspects of housing management including anti-social behaviour, tenancy breach, subletting, hoarding and debt recovery.

    I have worked in the social housing sector for the past ten years, acting for both registered providers and for tenants/defendants. Whilst working for tenants, I have had experience acting for very vulnerable and disadvantaged individuals in all aspects of housing litigation including possession and anti-social behaviour proceedings. My work with tenants has given me an in-depth knowledge of public funding, as well the law relating to homelessness, allocations and disrepair.

    I am an experienced advocate and frequently provide representation for clients in County Court proceedings. I have a legal aid background and acted for tenants for many years before joining Bevan Brittan. This experience has given me great insight and in-depth knowledge which I now utilise to support social landlords.

    The majority of my work is for Local Authorities and Housing Associations in managing their housing stock. I also regularly act for the NHS, supported accommodation providers and private organisations.

    Kate Hicks always listens to frustrations and shares her rationale in decision making. Very considered in her approach, gives excellent advice and her support during complex cases is much appreciated.
