Conveyancing – Residential/Commercial

However, we have not changed our policies. We are still keen to offer our clients a tailored made professional service for all their conveyancing work, Residential or Commercial.

In any event, we require your Proof of Identity such as valid Passport and/or Full UK Driving Licence together with a copy of your Utility Bill in your name as proof of your address. We also require your National Insurance Number. We do need these documents as we are bound by law to comply with the Money Laundering Regulations.

It could be a small claim issue or may be a matter which needs to be dealt at the Fast Track or at Multi Track by the different levels of Courts.  Up to £5000.00, remedies could be sought in the Small Claims Court, which is normally a County Court. An amount involving more than £5000.00, and up to £15,000.00, can be heard at the County Court First Track level. Claims more than £15,000.00 will be dealt by either the County Court or at the High Court in Multi Track level. In any event, you are required to pay the Court Fees.

Insolvency & Bankruptcy

In modern life, as credit becomes easily accessible, it can also easily get out of hand in certain circumstances. Debt can also arise from other causes. At Haque and Hausmann Solicitors we understand that each case is unique and we tailor our service to meet each individual need.

From experience, it is certainly the most difficult time for our clients when having decided to declare Bankrupcy. This could happen for many reasons. The procedures to apply for Bankruptcy is complicated. In a Bankruptcy petition, it is essential to establish why an individual is unable to continue with his payments to his creditors. Later, the Applicant must satisfy the Receiver to the same extent.


Landload & Tenants

We have successfully represented various landlords in residential sectors to evict their tenants who have fallen into rent arrears. It may be the Tenant’s personal circumstances which force him to not pay rent to a landlord, but sadly this fact does not help a landlord to keep up with his mortgage payments.

We have noticed that few tenants deliberately stop paying rent to facilitate them in the housing market.  This will, eventually, trigger the possession proceeding by the Landlord and the if the possession claim is successful, the Court normally issues the eviction order. With the eviction order, the Local Authority is under an obligation to remove the Tenant from the house.

It is vital for every landlord that the rent deposit should be kept in a separate Rent Deposit Account and the certificate of the same must be served on the Tenant. The valid Notice is another important issue and the notice period must be complied by the serving Landlord.  The tenancy may be in the form of Assured Shorthold Tenancy which is the most common. But the tenancy may also be a Periodic Tenancy or Statutory Tenancy, where the tenancy agreement expires. In both events, the Notice Period is crucial.


Personal Injury

We specialise in obtaining compensation for accident and injury victims of Road Traffic Accident (RTA); Slips, Trips and Falls as well as Accidents at Work.

We understand that suffering an injury which was not your fault is very distressing. We also understand that the consequences of an accident are personal and unique to each individual and we are sympathetic to our clients’ particular needs.

We will usually work on a ‘No Win No Fee’ basis, which means that you may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim without worrying about the legal costs. However, we are able to advise you on the full range of funding options available to you, which includes the 'no-win, no-fee'.

We have many clients throughout the whole of the UK and we have successfully assisted our clients to claim compensation while helping them focus on their recovery.

Remember, whether your injury has caused you only modest inconvenience or has been far more severe, you could have a valid claim for compensation. Our specialist accident and injury lawyers are here to help you.


Wills & Probate

Making a Will is essential if you want to control what happens to your assets after your death. Without a Will, your estate will be split according to the strict Intestacy Rules, which may not reflect your wishes.

A Will is an important document that is relatively straightforward to prepare. We believe that a Will provides you with peace of mind, is affordable and not time-consuming to make. We can help you structure a Will, clearly setting out how your money and assets will be distributed, in the way that you intend it to be after your death.

If you already have a Will, we can help you make adjustments or changes should you decide that any are required. We always advise to revise your Will every three years to make sure that you are still happy with the content.

If you wish, you can make a Living Will. Such a document outlines those treatments you do not wish to receive in the event of certain illnesses or an accident.

We offer easy to understand advice and guidance to help you take care of your estate, assisting you with all of your planning needs, including:

    Legal advice and assistance when making a Will

    Keeping a Will up to date

    Simple or complex Wills and Trusts
