Jehangir Asghar



I am a property solicitor and head of the residential conveyancing and commercial conveyancing team at Hancock Quins Solicitors in Watford.

I advise on the sale and purchase of leasehold and freehold property, including new builds, auctions, re-financing and transfers of equity, usually for private and high net worth clients.

As a property lawyer my focus is on getting the outcome that clients need, whether that is negotiating the right lease term to meet the client’s commercial needs, securing a plot of land, or agreeing tenancy arrangements that make commercial sense.

My work also involves acting on major acquisitions and developments of commercial property, as well as advising landlords and tenants on their commercial leases. Recent projects include the purchase of land for a housing development in Bushey, as well as negotiating the sale of some commercial units in Watford. Our client base extends to companies, individuals and property developers from all over England and Wales.

As an experienced commercial property solicitor, I constantly have my ear to the ground for opportunities for clients to grow their portfolios. I can advise on the way transactions should be structured to maximise profit or ensure a continued income stream, all to ensure that clients get the best results possible.

Buying and selling property can represent a massive investment, and I ensure that that the Hancock Quins conveyancing team delivers the highest levels of expertise, local knowledge and diligence.

I can help you with all aspects of residential and commercial property law, including:

  • buying a house/flat
  • selling a house/flat
  • remortgage
  • transfer of equity
  • new builds
  • leases and lease extensions
  • part-ownership and staircasing
  • deeds of variation
  • granting and advising on new business tenancies and leases
  • lease renewals
  • break clauses
  • sale and purchase of commercial properties

My spare time is spent keeping fit; I am a regular at the gym and enjoy long walks around Cassiobury Country Park, in Watford.

Friendly, down-to-earth legal advice you can trust
