Alex Melvin chats with barrister and park home legal expert Ibraheem Dulmeer, finding out more about his practice as a barrister…
Ibraheem has been involved in the park home world since 2014 and has been a contributor to the PH&HL since this date. He is a barrister at Normanton Chambers in central London and at www.parkhomeslaw.com.
Q: What type of work do you do?
A: I offer bespoke legal advice and help to anyone in the park home world, including anyone who is about to buy a park home. I also provide advice to the holiday home sector. My practice is varied: I can be assisting a park home or holiday home purchaser one day, in a tribunal hearing another, and engaged in negotiation correspondence – all in one week! I feel privileged to help those in their ‘forever home’ help resolve issues that have sometimes been ongoing for months or even years. Many legal disputes can be resolved through careful negotiation and an in-depth understanding and application of the law – which puts me in the best position to assist. Court or Tribunal is always the last resort.
Q: How can someone get in touch with you?
A: Logging onto www.parkhomeslaw.com is the easiest way for anyone who is looking for help. There is a contact box on there, which you can use to contact me. This would give me an opportunity to consider your situation before I make contact. If this is not possible, you you can also contact me by telephone to see if I can assist on 07939 259924, or by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org. I always aim to get back to those who contact me as soon as possible.
Q: How do your fees work?
A: I offer fixed fees for any work, so you know exactly what you are paying for when you engage me and there are no hidden surprises. Where a dispute might involve several residents on a park, then the legal costs can also be split between them, which can help reduce the cost burden.
