Human Rights Applications

Buying or selling a property in London can be a complex process, especially when it comes to conveyancing. Transferring property ownership from one person to another is called "conveyancing," and it is a formal legal process, and it is essential for a smooth and successful transaction. To ensure that everything goes smoothly, it is important to work with experienced and reputable property conveyancing solicitors in London.

What is Conveyancing and why is it Important?

Transferring property ownership legally is called conveyancing. It involves researching the property's legal title, reviewing and drafting legal documents, and coordinating the transfer of funds and possession of the property. Conveyancing is essential for ensuring that the property is legally and financially sound and that the transaction is completed correctly and on time.

Human rights underpin every aspect of our lives, but some of the key principles involve:

  • The right to life
  • Freedom from discrimination or harassment
  • The right to a private life
  • Access to healthcare and medication

Human rights applications can be particularly complex and must be prepared with the greatest care and skill. Our specialist human rights and immigration solicitors are well placed to provide you with the advice and representation you need to make a successful human rights application.

Human Rights Cases

Asylum Applications

The reason for an individual leaving their country to seek Asylum should be the fear of persecution, torture, or even death and this can be on account of one or more of the following reasons: race, religion, nationality, membership of particular social group or political opinion.

You must be within the UK to claim asylum and show that you are not willing or unable to return by demonstrating a well-founded fear of persecution in your home country based on this narrow range of protected characteristics or activities.

It is important to apply for asylum as soon as possible, whether that is soon after arriving in the UK or if circumstances in your home country change while you are here.
A successful application for Asylum gives individuals the right to residence in a country. It also seeks to protect refugees from forced removal through deportation or extradition by the persecuting state.

It is a complex area of law and you may be unsure whether you are eligible to make a claim. Our experts are on hand to consider the strength of your case and will clearly explain the process, guiding you through all stages of your claim including interviews and any appeals.

Human rights underpin every aspect of our lives, but some of the key principles involve:

  • Claiming Asylum
  • Advising on Family Reunion Programmes once refugee status has been granted
  • Human Rights Applications
  • Discretionary Leave to Remain
  • Dealing with unsuccessful applications

Procedure & Process

If you want to apply for humanitarian protection, you can start applying at the port of entry where you need to inform the border forces that you are seeking humanitarian protection and that you are afraid of going back to your country.

Several questions will be asked concerning the claims for Asylum in the form of a screening interview which should take place within the same day or five days of the claim.
If an individual wants to claim asylum after entering the UK, they must call the home office to book an appointment for the Screening Interview.
We can represent you at these interviews and help support your application, including advising on any supporting documentation.
Once the applicant’s claim is successful, you will now be free to stay in the UK under humanitarian protection for five years.

What if My Case is Refused?

If the application is refused, an individual can do the following:

1. Appeal

You may be able to appeal to the First-tier Tribunal by completing the form which is usually sent by the Home Office together with the refusal letter. If this is not successful, we can help you apply for permission to appeal at the Upper Tribunal and if needed, to the Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court.

2. Fresh Claim

This is where all appeal rights have been exhausted and a new submission with new content is made. The materials included in the fresh claim will be different from what has been considered previously.
If the fresh claim is not accepted by the Home Office, then you may seek an appeal. For further information and advice, please call or email our immigration solicitors.

Frequently Asked Questions

Got a Question? We’re here to answer. If you don’t find your question below, contact us now.
What is a human rights application in immigration law?

The ECHR 1950, brought into English law by the Human Rights Act 1998, guarantees your most fundamental human rights, including the right to life, the right to freedom of expression and the right to liberty.

Because the Home Office is a public body, any immigration decisions decision made in respect of an individual’s entitlement to enter or remain in the UK must consider and be compatible with the principles of the ECHR.

If your application for permission to enter or to remain in the UK is refused, you may be eligible to appeal against that refusal on the basis that the decision breaches your human rights.

What does a Human Rights Immigration Lawyer do?

Our human rights lawyers have broad experience of conducting a range of cases dealing with the liberty of individuals, in both the UK courts and the European Court of Human Rights.

We have vast experience in preparing applications for the right to remain, appeals and judicial reviews to protect individual human rights in the immigration context.

We also assist and represent those who are in the UK because they face danger in their country of origin and want the UK to grant them international protection.


For individuals that are being forcibly removed from the UK through deportation after serving a criminal sentence, a human rights lawyer will liaise with criminal solicitors, draft Grounds for Appeal against your deportation and will assist you in representations against your removal or deportation in Court.

The Most Common Types of Human Rights Applications
  • An application based on the right to private and/ or family life in the context of Article
  • An application based on the right to life in the context of Article 10
  • An application based on the prohibition of inhuman or degrading treatment in the context of Article 3
