Why do I need Independent Legal advice to guarantee a Mortgages?
Mortgage companies will require an Independent Legal advice certificates to be signed by a solicitor in the following circumstances:
- The legal owner is different to the those taking on the responsibility fo the mortgage.
- The money is lent to a company and you are guaranteeing the loan ie your are on the mortgage but not on the title deeds
- You are guarantor for someone else but not an owner
- You are parents lending to you child/children or guaranteeing the loan and will need to be a party to the mortgage but not become owners
Such a step is usually time sensitive and could jeopardise the transaction if not completed in a timely fashion. This is often the final piece of the jigsaw in a long and laborious process.
