Erol Izzet – Principal

Erol qualified as a solicitor in 2002 whilst working for a High Street law firm in North London and became the Principal Solicitor at Carter Jones Solicitors in 2016.

Erol has worked in the area of social housing and property law since he qualified and has helped thousands of families and individuals resolve issues with local authority and private landlords. He works for those facing homelessness or eviction, those whose homes have not been repaired by their landlord. He also provides specialist advice in relation to houses in multiple occupation.

“I was born in Famagusta, Cyprus. I arrived in the UK as an 18-month-old toddler and grew up in Tottenham. I still think I’m the best No.9 Spurs never had.

I attended, Drayton School, which was my local comprehensive in South Tottenham, after my parents said, “you’re going to that school because it’s the nearest”.

I remember going to University during the Punk Rock years. After graduating with a Business Degree, I worked for 6 months on a legal services project for
Bain & Co Management Consultants.  I later started working in the commercial world – including as Regional Sales Manager (UK & Benelux) for Intercontinental Hotels Corporation. I eventually came to the conclusion that marketing 5-star luxury hotels was no fun, so gave up to study Law. I had the modest ambition of wanting to help people.

My first involvement in legal practice, was as an outdoor clerk, where I spent many days and afternoons in the Bear Garden of the Royal Courts of Justice.
This included appearing before Masters for short interim and pre-action applications. I gained experience in legal aid work so long ago that I remember Green forms.

I completed the Legal Practice Course at The College of Law – Store Street and qualified as a Solicitor in 2002.

After practising Housing & Social Welfare Law for many many years, in various High Street legal aid firms, I took up an in-house legal role at a large Property & Management Services Company. I became In-House Group Company Solicitor responsible for the Group Company’s UK wide residential property portfolio, and for debt recovery & enforcement.

I now specialise in Residential Property Litigation and Social Housing Law. I am able to draw on my extensive experience to offer efficient and flexible representation as the founding lawyer at Carter Jones Solicitors”.
