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.

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.

I was recommended Haneef at Neves who dealt with my property purchase from start to end. He was very quick in replying and always made sure I was updated with any progress. He remained professional and always explained any complex situations as I was a first time buyer with a very complex chain. He ensured a smooth and stress free process for myself. I would definitely recommend him and the firm to anyone, and would use them again if needed. Great job!

Over many years moving home, I know the value of having a responsive and proactive solicitor to make the stressful task of house buying an easier process, we pay a lot of money for the legal fees and some solicitors just don't seem to earn their money, getting hold of them can be a nightmare, but this isn't the case with Haneef Khan at Neves (Luton) he is simply the best!!! I have no hesitation to recommend him to anyone, please don't waste your money looking for the cheapest, Haneef is the best and most responsive, you can virtually always expect an immediate responsive from him. 5 stars!
