Independent Legal Advice Certificate

Mortgage companies very often require Independent Legal advice certificates to be signed by a solicitor. Your own conveyancing solicitor will be unable to offer this service as the mortgage company requires another independent solicitor to advise on the transaction. This is where we come in.


“Expert advice, crystal clear, incredibly responsive, really helpful – we waited several weeks for another law firm to help us and Garner and Hancock managed to do in 48 hours what they hadn’t been able to do in a month! Thanks so much to Vinay, Nancy and the team.”

Vinay Tanna Independent Legal Advice

“I recently used Garner and Hancock as i needed a certificate for independent legal advice as part of a joint borrower sole proprietor mortgage application. Nancy and Vinay were both incredibly helpful and patient especially of my lack of technological knowledge. Everything was explained clearly by Nancy and Vinay navigated me through the actual process in such a calm and friendly manner. They both made me feel completely at ease when i was clearly out of my depth. Every step was clear and the information given was done so with understanding and patience. I would have no hesitation recommending Garner and Hancock to anyone looking for legal representation or advice. Such a high level of professionalism without arrogance is very rare and most welcome, long may it continue!”

Vinay Tanna Independent Legal Advice

“I found Garner & Hancock through a Google search, as I needed some very urgent legal advice on a new type of mortgage. Nancy was incredibly helpful in helping me with what I needed. As soon as the paperwork was released to them, I was booked in for an appointment that evening after work (which was super speedy and also very accommodating to my work schedule). Vinay was very professional and I would recommend them to anyone.”
