"Thank you. I would also like to thank you for the excellent service you have provided myself throughout the purchase of the property".

"I’m writing to place on record my appreciation for the services offered by Naziana Ayed on behalf of Lewis Nedas Law. Throughout the process of organising our conveyancing Naziana stayed thoroughly professional, responsive and transparent. I would have no hesitation in recommending Naziana and the firm to any prospective clients. Once again, thanks for all the support and making the process as seamless as it could have been".

 "We thank you very much for all your diligent consideration and help during the process and for ensuring that everything went smoothly and correctly.  Your input was much appreciated".

"We had a complicated sale due to a very difficult buyer. This caused a huge amount of stress all round, for ourselves, estate agent and lawyers. However I felt both of the above worked immensely well together and their communication was excellent. Naziana, was assisting Jeremy and was dealing initially with the purchase of our onward and really did a sterling job lining all our ducks up so to speak ready for exchange of contract day. She was on the ball and was one step ahead prompting what may be needed from her to do no one was chasing her for anything. She was also approachable, professional and again able to be reached by both telephone and email.  I always felt confident if she was at her desk that she would reply to any of my queries ASAP. Naziana, in the end ended up doing the exchange of contracts and completion for us. As we had an extremely difficult buyer unfortunately together with his not so available lawyer was giving the other 5 in the chain a headache. As the chain is only as strong as the weakest link, I was so very glad it wasn't our party holding others up at this crucial moment. I can honestly say that without Naziana's determination and grit during the run up to exchange I don't think the exchange of contacts would have occurred. She was so focused and determined to get everything sorted for us i felt like she was a friend doing everything in her power to get things done for us. They didn't sit on their haunches for 1 minute, they were proactively chasing up the other lawyers and rallying round to get all parties organised for exchange day. Thankfully exchange and completion occurred and we have now moved. We were relocating outside of London with a young family and I am so very glad we chose Lewis Nedas for this important transaction. I am so very glad Jeremy and Naziana represented us all and would highly recommend Lewis Nedas Law to anyone who needs this service. Thankyou Naziana".

“Naziana was fantastic throughout the purchase of my flat. She was patient, clear and quick to action every request. She guided me - and the vendor’s solicitors - expertly through the development of a new lease, making sure that I got the best deal for now, and in the future. I can’t thank her enough”.

"Lewis Nedas Law was recommended to me by the estate agent, and Naziana, who eventually took on my case was an absolute pleasure to work with. This was my first property purchase in the Uk, so I was unfamiliar with the process and a little anxious after having been pushed around by various sellers in the past. From the first phone call I had with Naziana I felt like I was in good hands. She was very friendly, forthcoming, helpful and extremely professional. This was a lengthy and difficult transaction due to some complications with the management company of the housing block. She took the time to explain everything to me, and gave me the confidence I needed to proceed.  Naziana worked very hard to resolve the issues which were holding up the process, and thanks to her diligence and professionalism I now own a property. I feel if it wasn’t for her fantastic efforts the sale may have never happened. Thank you Naziana for all your help".
