I have used the conveyancing services of Anna Beavers at Mounteney Solicitors for several properties, and as have my parents. Anna is super professional and overall a great firm with fantastic customer management skills, and a real sense that Anna and the whole team is working to your best interests as a client. As I say, I am a repeat customer and have recommended the firm to several friends too.
I’ve used this solicitors a few times now for both business and personal matters. The team are really approachable and Anna and Amy have been great! Can’t recommend enough and glad to have had the support through a house move and taking on a commercial lease.

Amanda and Katie were friendly, professional and very thorough in their handling of my sale and purchase of property. Altogether as a team of solicitors I was pleasantly surprised at their patience and availablity.
Having to sell a house after a bereavement is always going to be hard but Katie Reade at Mountney Solicitors made the whole thing effortless. She was always there if I needed anything and was just superb. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending her to anyone needing conveyancing services. Thanks Katie

Katie recently completed the sale of my great Aunt's flat. Throughout the complicated and protracted sale, Katie kept us informed at every stage. She was considerate and supportive throughout, in fact Katie saved the day on many occasions. I would have not hesitation in recommending Kate and look forward to working with her again.

It’s crucial that you have a full understanding of any document that places you under financial or other obligations before signing. Whether you’re involved in a conveyancing transaction with a guarantor or using your property as security for a loan, this understanding is key.

That’s where independent legal advice comes in, ensuring that you don’t enter into an agreement with financial risks or because a borrower has put you under pressure.

Fortunately, you can count on Mounteney Solicitors for expert advice and services unsurpassed in the legal sector. We promise a professional yet friendly approach, breaking down the financial and legal details for your complete understanding. Once this is confirmed, we can issue a certificate of independent legal advice.

Give us a call at one of the numbers above or email for a friendly and professional legal service.

A Certificate of Independent Legal Advice can be taken as evidence that you’ve sat down with one of our solicitors and discussed any property process risks. It might have to be shown to a lender, particularly if you’re entering into a joint borrower sole proprietor mortgage or there are conflicts of interest.

A Certificate of Independent Legal Advice might also be required if:

  • You’re looking to secure a corporate loan with a personal guarantee
  • A personal guarantee is being offered on your behalf or another party has requested that you secure a loan on their property
  • You’re transferring equity from a jointly owned property to a property to be owned in your sole name

The lender won’t be able to proceed until seeing the certificate as part of the duty to protect you against undue influence. They will also want to ensure that a loan is only issued if a guarantee is given by someone able to pay back the debt.
