Independent Legal Advice

Independent Legal Advice on the implications of signing a Deed of Consent 

Ola Leslie Solicitors, specialising in residential and commercial conveyancing

When obtaining a mortgage, the owner of a property (the person named on the mortgage) will be asked by his lender if there will be any people who will be residing at the property on completion who won’t be named on the mortgage.

If this is the case, the lender will ask the borrower to have all additional occupiers sign a Deed of Consent.
The firm of solicitors who are acting for the borrower will write to an occupier or proposed occupier asking them to obtain independent legal advice on the implications of signing a Deed of Consent and have their signature witnessed on the Deed by an independent solicitor .

In these circumstances, we can assist you with this, quite often on short notice.
