Independent Solicitors Certificate for Personal Guarantors.

Also known as a personal guarantor certificate or a legal advice certificate they provide certification that a person has obtained independent legal advice about the risks and obligations associated with being a third-party guarantor to someone else’s financial lending.

Such a guarantee usually requires that you provide the lender with an indemnity also.

The Process

Independent Solicitors Certificate for Personal Guarantors.


1. Get your Documents

The lender will send you a number of documents in the mail (or increasingly by email) addressed to you as the personal guarantor. Once you have all those documents you need to read them yourself carefully.
Tip: Double check your documents to ensure the advice is a mandatory requirement.


2. Contact Us

We will ask you to get a copy of all the documents to us so we can read over them before setting up an appointment to give you the advice you need. That appointment normally takes around 45 minutes to 1 hour and must be attended by you only, in person.
Tip: Come ready to answer all the questions you might have on the documents.


3. We provide your Certificate

After receiving our advice we’ll provide you with an independent solicitors advice certificate and you’ll be ready to provide that to the bank or other lender.
If you want to, and feel ready to, we will also witness you sign the personal guarantee document also.
