Sole Borrower Joint Proprietor

For this type of independent legal advice the lender requires the party who isn't on the mortgage, but is living at the property to get independent legal advice on:

  • the equity in the property with independent legal advice re the mortgage terms; and
  • waiving rights to reside at the property with an occupier waiver/deed of postponement.

Whilst the most common phrase for this type of independent legal advice is Sole Borrower Joint Proprietor, this type of advice also effects any party giving money to fund the purchase where they aren't on the mortgage or the legal title.

Does your Lender accept ILA by video conference?
Some mortgage lenders will not accept independent legal advice provided by video conference. It is your responsibility to check that they will accept a signature which has been witnessed by video conference. If your certificate is refused by your mortgage lender because your independent legal advice was conducted by video conference, Parachute Law reserves the right to withhold any refund of our fees.
