Candys sue Qataris over Chelsea barracks

The owner of the Chelsea barracks redevelopment in London is being sued by property tycoons Nick and Christian Candy for £1 million in unpaid fees

The Sunday Times quotes a spokesman for Candy & Candy as saying: ‘We deeply regret having to take this action. We hope this unfortunate matter can be resolved quickly.’

They have reportedly instructed lawyer Wragge & Co to recover money they claim for work on the £3 billion residential scheme. The brothers made their fortune selling luxury flats.

According to the newspaper, Lord Rogers’s architectural firm is also suing Chelsea barracks developer Qatari Diar, in their case for £2 million in unpaid fees.

Meanwhile, it says that Qatari chairman Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Jabr al-Thani is backing One Hyde Park, another project marketed by the Candys.
