When you purchase or remortgage a property in the name of a limited company, a mortgage lender may require you to enter into a Deed of Guarantee and Indemnity (also known as a Personal Guarantee). The effect of this is to provide the lender with security that should the company default on its obligations, you as an individual will have to meet the financial commitments instead.

A firm of solicitors will already be acting for the borrower company so they will not be able to advise the company director as an individual due to there being a potential conflict of interest. They will advise a company director to obtain independent legal advice on the implications of entering into a Personal Guarantee. The independent solicitor may then have to sign a certificate confirming that advice was given, and witness the company director’s signature on the Deed of Guarantee and Indemnity.

In such circumstances, we can assist you, quite often on short notice.

We also assist with independent legal advice relating to Deeds of Consent / Letters of Postponement, HSBC indirect mortgages, transfers of equity, adding debt onto your mortgage, equity releases, statutory declarations and ID1s.

Please call us on 0207 183 0084 or email us on property@olaleslie.com for details on our fees and to book a mutually convenient appointment.
