What is independent legal advice (‘ILA’)?

Independent legal advice is impartial advice that each person involved in a legal matter obtains from a Solicitor who is independent to the transaction.

An individual signing a guarantee or providing security should seek to obtain ILA so that they are clearly aware of the transaction in question and the full extent of their liability. A Guarantor should always meet the Lender’s requirements when signing guarantee to affect the mortgage/loan facility in question.

Why do I need ILA?

Obtaining ILA prior to signing a guarantee document is an essential requirement as it prevents misrepresentation or undue influence.

Following the House of Lords in the case of Royal Bank of Scotland v Etridge (No 2) and other appeals [2001] 3 FCR 481 it was established that there is a need for the guarantor to be advised separately prior to signing the Guarantee document .
