In order to finalise a deal and release cash, banks may often need an Independent Legal Advice (ILA) Certificate. To prove that a party has met with and received legal advice from an independent lawyer before to entering into an agreement or transaction, that party will be awarded a Certificate of Independent Legal Advice (ILA). All parties to a transaction or agreement should not be represented by the same lawyer.

To put it another way, if a party has an ILA Certificate, it signifies that they voluntarily entered into a transaction or arrangement without being pressured or bullied. In order to prevent a party from claiming ignorance of the law or lack of understanding of the ramifications of a document, later on, an ILA certificate must be signed.

Before issuing an ILA certificate, a lawyer will meet with their client to go over the finer points of the agreement or transaction at hand, as well as to make sure their client understands the legalese used in the contract and the risks they are taking on by entering into it.

We provide expert services that include issuing ILA certifications. Many legal and financial situations, including property sales and purchases, mortgage refinancing, loan agreements, and even certain domestic relations cases, need the presence of such a certificate. If you need an ILA certificate quickly, please get in touch with us. Time slots on the same day are available.
