Independent Legal Advice in Bristol, Somerset & Nationally

During a transaction you may find yourself in a situation where you are being told that you need to take Independent Legal Advice.

Independent Legal Advice or ILA is required for a matter that will affect the rights, benefits or liability of another person other than the individual undertaking the transaction. Its completion will be critical to allow the transaction to complete to ensure that the other person is probably advised and the lender or beneficiary is protected.

Independent Legal Advice is commonly required in the following circumstances:

  • Director’s Personal Guarantees (on Corporate loans and mortgages)
  • Personal Guarantees (where an individual guarantees  repayment of a loan made to someone else)
  • 3rdParty Legal Mortgages (where the Borrower is not the same person as the person offering the lender security)
  • Occupier’s Consent to a Mortgage
  • Family “Springboard” Mortgages
  • Transfers of Equity
  • Deed of Subrogation
  • Deed of indemnity
  • Equity Release
