Client Testimonials

Excellent work over one year in dealing with obtaining a lease extension . Aashu and Meena et al provided sound sage advice and forbearance in the difficult situation. I highly recommend HPLP”


"We didn’t get a chance to thank you properly on the purchase of our previous property as you had left on maternity leave by then but we feel incredibly grateful that we were then put in touch with you two years ago as you have been so helpful on guiding us through two purchases and a sale in the last two years and we would both recommend you in a heartbeat to anyone.  Always on hand to answer endless questions for us, offer our expertise and advice and hassle people on our behalf, we always know we are in good hands with you handling the legal side of things and know you’re always on the case for us and it makes a real genuine difference to the stress of the whole thing.  In the current climate of what I’m sure has been an extraordinarily busy time in your industry with the stamp duty deadline and working days off and handling family duties, we are both so grateful and slightly in awe of how you’ve managed to get it over the line for us."

Hamish Buchanan and Jess Burton  

"Thank you for your help and assistance throughout the purchase process, it was much appreciated and genuinely couldn't have wished or hoped for an easier, quicker and/or more stress-free process than what you were able to provide me, which especially as a first purchase, was an absolute blessing, absolutely flawless."

Jonathon Moar

"Thanks again for all your efforts…we are very grateful and have been very impressed with the service we got from you. We will happily recommend your services to friends."

Tom Noble & Ella Seed

"Many thanks for all your help on getting us through. I appreciate this was a more complex and trying deal than most conveyancing, yet you stayed patient and pushed for the best outcomes for us throughout.
 Chris and I appreciated your quick responses and sound advice throughout the process."

Anna Robinson

"I just wanted to get in touch to say how happy we were with the conveyancing services you provided us with. Everything was done in a professional, efficient and friendly way and we were kept fully up to date on progress. It was so reassuring to have someone we could trust there to answer any queries as it was our first step onto the property ladder. We’ve already recommended you to friends!" 

"Just to say thank you Hannah very much for all your patience and help over the last few months, we finally got there! We couldn't have done it with out you as they say and I'm sure you're as relieved as we are that we can move on."

"A formal thank you for being always helpful and quick to respond to queries in a clear and understandable way. This process has been quite long and stressful and I know many people have nothing but complaints about solicitors and the conveyancing process. You have helped to make it a bit less stressful. I will be recommending you to anyone in the future who is going through this process."

Benjamin Freedman

"Would just like to take this opportunity to express our appreciation of your handling of this matter. Ever gentle and patient, yet determined and efficient, you've brought this long drawn out process to a successful conclusion, despite all obstacles, mess and loose ends along the way. Many thanks for never losing your cool! I will certainly recommend you to other clients."

Gillian and Harald Nieuwland

"I and four other flat owners in my block instructed Ash Oberoi of HPLP solicitors to handle our flats lease extension claims and very much appreciate his highly professional and efficient handling of our matters and, if the opportunity arises, would have no hesitation in recommending him and his firm"

Thomas Sheerin

"I am a Housing Manager at Wandle HA and for the last six years, I have worked with various solicitors specifically for advice and guidance on ASB issues. I find HPLP professional, hardworking team players. They always get it right first time. I always get very good results and I have total confidence in their advice. I always recommend HPLP to other Housing Associations, as I'm convinced they will benefit from the service as much as I do."

Joanne Panton
Neighbourhood Manager, Wandle Housing Association Ltd.

"Using an agent, my wife and I entered into a (badly drafted) lease of our property to a company for use by its director. The tenant company actually didn't exist. We sought eviction in the West London County Court for rent arrears. This was a very complex matter given the structure of the lease, and difficulty with parties. However, after carefully drafting the appropriate pleadings, HPLP provided us with first class guidance and support always ensuring we kept to a defined plan and monitored what we said and did in pursuing the eviction. HPLP eased the stress of pursuing the claim, and we very highly recommend them."

Ed Rieu
US Tax Attorney, with "Big 4" Firm

"HPLP'S first class expertise in dealing with the legal aspects of the Lease Extension of our Prime Central London Apartment provided to be invaluable.

This is more so for the fact that the actual process is complex and rooted in history and a 21st Century approach is necessary. Tactical support was provided during the negotiations and once these were concluded the Lease was drawn-up thoroughly and precisely. It will stand the test of time.

The above comments are not just said but truly meant as a compliment to the entire team at HPLP who can be fully relied upon for their courtesy, efficiency and clarity"

Supernova Associates and Ajit Uttamchandani of Wyndham House Bryanston Square London W1H 2DS

"Having gained Planning approval for a very large extension to convert a bungalow to a house, we reached an impasse with the Trust, the beneficiary of a Restrictive Covenant on our property. We engaged HPLP and six months later our problems are resolved and we're about to start building. They covered every possible angle to prepare a case for Court, but managed to avoid proceedings and further costs by negotiating an amicable agreement with the Trust. All of the complex options throughout our dealings were put to us in a very clear and easily understood format with patience and perseverance. Dealing with HPLP was easy and our solicitor was very accessible and responsive by phone and email."

Tony Howard
Executive Services Manager, NCR Corporation

"Having engaged many solicitors throughout the years, HPLP certainly take a lot of beating. The staff are friendly, concise in their dealings and most importantly are very professional. The client is informed in every step of the legal process either by phone or email which leads to a first class working relationship. For an excellent cost effective service I would have no hesitation in recommending HPLP."

Tony Hayward
Project Surveyor, Amicus Horizon Group

"While working overseas, we rented out our house in the UK. On our return, we had difficulty regaining possession of our property so we sought professional assistance. The team at Housing and Property Law are experts in their field. They provided balanced, professional guidance and helped us navigate the complexities of property law, ultimately ensuring we regained possession of our family home. I highly recommend Housing and Property Law."

Philip Andreopoulos
Company Director

"We have been using HPLP as our solicitors for many years for both housing management matters such as rent arrears and ASB and for property and development matters. We have found the HPLP staff to be very supportive and approachable and the service we receive to be professional and reliable. HPLP acted for us recently in relation to a stock transfer and when matters became fraught and complex - as they do - it was reassuring to know that we could rely on HPLP to put the extra effort in that was needed to keep things moving to a successful conclusion."

John Smith  - Director - CHISEL

"As a director of Petticrow Quays Freehold Ltd, I instructed Ash Oberoi of HPLP Solicitors to act for me and 45 other leaseholders to acquire the freehold interest from our large property developer Landlord. Ash's knowledge in the field was excellent and he guided us through the process and its twist and turns very well. HPLP know their law and managed to keep this purchase within the Statutory Timetable. As I understand it this purchase was far more complex as it involved acquiring the freehold of 3 parcels of unregistered land so Ash's combined conveyancing and enfranchisement law expertise was invaluable in seeing this matter through to successful completion"

Dennis Cheek (Director) - For and on behalf of Petticrow Quays Freehold Limited

"On two separate, very difficult occasions HPLP acted for me at the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal. On both occasions, they achieved excellent results in a very polite and professional manner. HPLP took an extremely stressful situation off me and I have complete confidence in recommending her to anyone who has any legal property problems."

Eva Barry
Leaseholder in London

"Innisfree uses HPLP for legal advice for the majority of its housing management and maintenance services. They provide a high quality, responsive and efficient service at a competitive price. All casework is handled in a supportive and professional manner, with regular updates to staff. Innisfree, in conjunction with HPLP, has achieved successful outcomes on a number of difficult and complex tenancy issues including sub-letting, anti-social behaviour and disrepair."

Matthew Wicks
Housing Director, Innisfree Housing Association

"I am very thankful to HPLP for the support their talented and professional consultants provide. I have always found their ability and experience to be paramount when it comes to addressing housing advice and disrepair litigation on our behalf. The firm has been unfailing in using their skills and knowledge in housing legislation to help me meet my organisation's business needs – and they continues to do so."

Imtiyaz Bobat
Maintenance Manager, Wandle Housing Association Ltd.

"We have worked very closely with HPLP for several years and found them to be extremely professional and customer focused. Most of the cases they have assisted with have been serious anti-social behaviour matters, requiring the use of the whole range of remedies available to RPs. We have been extremely pleased with the service they provide and their experience and expertise has ensured excellent outcomes.

As a Neighbourhood Team dealing with a wide variety of issues, from basic to complex tenancy queries to very challenging behaviour such as crime and anti-social behaviour, it's vital that a trusting relationship is established between us and our solicitors. This has certainly been the case with HPLP. No matter when we phone or how insignificant the query may be, we always receive prompt, user friendly advice. HPLP have also provided valuable (and free) regular training to Neighbourhood Teams within Orbit South Housing, in relation to both the legal remedies and the practical aspects of dealing with anti-social behaviour cases. It's always a pleasure working with HPLP – long may this continue!!"

Lyn Toogood
Neighbourhood Manager, Orbit South Housing

"We recently used HPLP in connection with a squatter problem at one of our premises. From the start, the relevant law and the various courses of action open to us were explained in easy to understand terms. Everything went through smoothly to the final conclusion with the removal of the squatters.

All of our queries were dealt with promptly, courteously and efficiently. We would be happy to employ HPLP again if the need arose and we can't recommend HPLP's services too highly to anyone with these sorts of legal problems."

Steve Gaines 
Facilities Manager, Imprima (UK) Ltd

"I am very pleased with the services provided by HPLP. As a first home buyer, and purchasing at auction, I asked HPLP to review both the auction and contract documents prior to purchase and to undertake the property conveyancing once the purchase was complete. The team was professional and any queries I had were addressed promptly. When delays arose due to circumstances beyond my control, it was HPLP's expedient actions and clear decision making that mitigated further delays and costs arising from failure to meet the completion deadline.

It's therefore a tremendous credit to all involved that the contract was completed on the set date. I felt very reassured by the sound advice conveyed by the solicitor throughout the process. HPLP provide a personalised, professional and expedient service at a competitive price. It's with pleasure and confidence that I can recommend their conveyancing service when purchasing or selling one's home."

Wilson Goh

"HPLP provided excellent advice and dealt efficiently and effectively with the Landlord resulting in our successful proceedings and completion of the repairs at the Landlord's cost."

Anne Weir

"I dealt with HPLP on both a lease extension and a property sale/purchase transaction. I work not far from HPLP's offices, and I enjoyed meeting the team dealing with my case, and the personal attention I received. I found HPLP to be a professional team who are always helpful and contactable, and dealt swiftly with my queries. I would be happy to recommend HPLP."

Neil Holmes

"A world of thanks to HPLP for your hard work concerning my case. It was a long journey and I'm thankful for how it was settled. I probably wasn't your best client and again - thank you for your patience over the months. I am sincerely grateful and can't thank you enough."
