We can reassure you that our residential property specialists continue to be at your side to provide the assistance and advice that you may need to navigate through any additional issues caused by COVID-19. Read feedback we have received from clients that have moved home during these challenging times:

"Communication and explanation was superb even after the lockdown when Charlene and Jackie were working from home. Even your telephonist was always positive, professional and helpful during these challenging times. Massive thanks."  Martin Burt

"We used Neves Solicitors services when buying our first home. Our solicitor Haneef was outstanding and professional throughout the process. He was always responsive to emails, often replying within minutes. We moved just after the restrictions on lockdown had been lifted and throughout lockdown Haneef continued to support us to get our sale to go through which we are very appreciative of. Would definitely recommend their services." Gemma

"Haqib, my family and I wanted to thank you for all your hard work over the past 6 months. It was a challenging transaction that was a very big deal for myself, my mother, brother and wife and thanks to your effort it all went smoothly in the end. You and your team provide an excellent service and as before I will highly recommend you to others. I would like to end with thanking you and your team for your ongoing patience, as I know my frequency in communication was much more than some clients! I wish you all the best for the future and hope everyone stays safe in these testing times." Aamir Siddiqui

"Professional and efficient and all questions and queries asked were always replied to fast and nothing was ever too much to ask - especially with Kelly. Kelly was amazing throughout the whole process - especially when everyone around her had been furloughed. She was amazing with answering questions and any of our queries were answered fast and efficiently."

Buying or selling a Home

Buying or selling a Home

Whether you are buying or selling a property can be daunting and exciting at the same time. Our residential property team understand this and will act to ensure the process is as efficient and as transparent as possible.

Remortgages

Remortgages

Remortgages should be quick, efficient, cost-effective and relatively pain-free as you already own the property and all that is happening is you are replacing one mortgage with another. However often this is not the experience of clients who opt to use the Lender’s solicitor on a “free legal service” basis.

Transfers of Equity

Transfers of Equity

A transfer of equity is required where the ownership of the property is to change but at least one of the original owners will remain as an owner, which is different to a sale and purchase of the property where the original owner will have no continued interest in the property.

Land purchases and sales

Land purchases and sales

The buying and selling of land is almost identical in process to that of property conveyancing, but land only transactions do present unique challenges so it is essential that you use a professional advisor who is experienced in this area.

Leasehold Property and Extensions and Management

Leasehold Property and Extensions and Management

Owners of leasehold properties have options to extend their existing leases, take over the management of the common parts (collectively with neighbours) and/or purchase the freehold either as individual house owner or as the owner of a flat collectively with neighbours. Neves Solicitors has offices in Harpenden, Luton & Milton Keynes so we are able to provide legal services across Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire.

Boundary Disputes

Boundary Disputes

There are different types of boundary disputes including those between commercial and agricultural neighbours but the most common is between neighbours in residential properties. It is not surprising that the number of boundary disputes continues to increase as more and more houses are built.

Cohabitation Agreements

Cohabitation Agreements

If you are buying a property with your partner it is a good idea to agree at the outset whether you will own the property in equal or unequal shares, and what contributions you will make to the purchase price, mortgage and ongoing costs of running and improving the property with a Cohabitation Agreement.

Haneef, you’ve been great and it’s been a pleasure. Being in the industry, I know how tough it is to find good legal representation. I will definitely recommend you to my friends and colleagues.
