Anil recently represented Modus in connection with an acquisition and back-to-back onward sale of land in Leicestershire, which Modus will be developing into affordable housing for a social housing provider. The transaction involved overcoming various obstacles and was multifaceted and involved overage, collateral warranties and working collaboratively with the landowner and social housing providers solicitors. Anil’s advice and perseverance throughout the transaction was outstanding and instrumental to achieving a great result for everyone involved and it has been a pleasure to work with Anil and to have represent Modus and we look forward to working with Anil in the future.

We used Anil for a land purchase of ours. The land purchase itself was very testing at times due to various obstacles with the land itself. Lucky for us, we had Anil on hand to not only get over these obstacles, but also fully explain along the way, which we found very impressive as this will help us in future land purchases. Anil’s attention to detail is amazing and very thorough. We’re looking forward to working with Anil and the team at Excello Law again on future deals we have coming up – highly recommended.

Anil has been extremely thorough, as one might expect, but also excellent at explaining things, suggesting alternatives where needed and at keeping in touch with extreme promptness so that we have felt completely supported through the whole process.
We put him under time pressure to which he responded with great patience and the utmost courtesy. He was alert to our needs as a charity and ensured that we were aware of the requirement for a surveyor under charity law.

Anil Kumar was engaged to complete the renewal of our lease of our building to our existing tenant. We found his work to be of the highest standard, efficiently carried out and most professional, yet friendly. I would have no hesitation recommending his services to others.
