Going back a few years, it was relatively easy to obtain Independent Legal Advice where it was required. However, several recent cases have been brought where solicitors providing Independent Legal Advice have been found to have done so inadequately, and have ended up bearing liability for the debts that were the subject of the Independent Legal Advice.
As a result, these days, many solicitors will decline requests to provide Independent Legal Advice, on the basis that it is “high risk and low reward”. In addition many solicitors’ Professional Indemnity Insurance policies prevent them from giving Independent Legal Advice.
Here at ILA-Connect we have worked hard to identify solicitors in your area that provide this service, and to compare their prices, such that we are able to refer you easily and quickly to someone that will carry out the work economically. This is so you find someone to provide the service, promptly, and that you are not overcharged.
