Frequently Asked Questions
We offer online legal advice and identity verification, so we can provide the advice you need anywhere in throughout the world using video conference.

Since COVID mortgage lenders have become used to seeing advice provided in this fashion with only a few lenders requiring face to face meetings in the same office.
The purpose of ILA is to make sure that you understand the risks and implications of what you are agreeing to and that the decision to sign is yours and yours alone. The adviser must be able confidently to confirm that you are not being coerced into signing the documents.

If you are not on your own during the meeting then the solicitor will stop the meeting and you will need to rebook at a time where you are alone at a cost of £120 INC VAT. We will not refund any fee to you if you don't rebook.
When you seek independent legal advice it is often at the very end of a transaction and the cost may not have been something you budgeted for. Whilst there is a draw to go for the cheapest, the reason for the legal advice is to ensure you are fully aware of the terms you are signing up to and that the mortgage lender has an independent solicitor to pursue should you claim the advice wasn't clear enough.

With mortgage values increasing, which in effect increases the financial risk for the solicitor who is indemnifying the advice they provide, the cost is increasing in line with the risk the solicitor takes on.
A solicitor cannot give free legal advice to their client.

* Subject to availability. If we are fully booked ask and we will see if we can fit you in sooner.
** We can act for all mortgage lenders, however some lenders such as Fleet Mortgages do not allow ILA by video conference. To avoid delays check with your lender or ask us if we can complete via video conference.
