iLA | The UK's only SRA Approved Law Firm specialising exclusively in Independent Legal Advice

iLA Network

If you are a solicitor, broker, intermediary or lender, then we can help you to offer a seamless service to your client by providing fast, reliable and efficient ILA.

We truly value our iLA Network, and so if you are considering working with us then we will be happy to meet you in person or arrange an online meeting to introduce ourselves, find out more about you and, most importantly, how we can help you and your clients.

Seamless Technology and Dedicated Network app

At iLA, we understand that time is of the essence, and so we have created a secured app for our trusted network where you can easily, and securely, send a text style message a member of the team and fire over some documents for us to initially look at if you would like to know what form of ILA is required and when we can provide the advice. We want to be readily available, and break down barriers that often cause delays in the legal industry.

We want to make the process as easy as possible for you and your client, and so using leading technology we are able to onboard your client within minutes using electronic verification and due diligence. We can provide your client with the ILA required on the same day.

Mitigate Risk and Avoid Delays

You can rest assured that we understand the legal necessity for ILA’s but also, and most importantly, we know all of the ILA requirements and formalities. We can ensure risk is mitigated and delays are avoided, and make sure you do not have to spend

What sets us apart is that, importantly, we are not an introducer, comparison site or a lead generation platform for other firms. We are an established Regulated Law Firm, and hold the relevant Professional Indemnity Insurance solely for providing all types of banking and property related ILA.

We are the UK's only SRA Regulated Law Firm specialising exclusively in Independent Legal Advice (ILA) and iLA's team of solicitors are experts in their field having collectively been advising on complex banking and property related issues for decades. You can rest assured that we understand the legal necessity for ILA's but also, and most importantly, we know all of the ILA requirements and formalities.

  • Available 7 Days a Week
  • Fixed Fees
  • Dedicated Exclusively to ILA

  • Banking & Property Specialists
  • Solicitors

    As solicitors ourselves, we understand that your priority will be to ensure that your client receives clear, concise and accurate legal advice, in a timely, convenient and stress free manner.

    Your client feel frustrated that they are unable to find a solicitor to provide the ILA, or not understanding what they need to do is the last thing you hope for - ILA's can often be a last minute (sometimes unknown!) requirement, and completing the wider transaction will hinge on getting the necessary ILA. Understandably this can be stressful for you and your client, and can end up adversely affecting the high level of client service that you have so far worked hard to deliver and maintain.

    When it comes to independent legal advice, we are here to remove this burden from you.

    From the moment you contact us, we will promptly confirm the lender's requirements and check that all the relevant documents have been provided by the lender (and in the correct format to avoid any issues at a later date). Once we have received the ILA documents and on-boarded the client, we can usually provide the ILA (via an online meeting) within 2 hours. Following the meeting, we will immediately contact the lender to advise that the ILA has been provided and so the whole process can be completed, from start to finish, in less than a day.

    We will always keep you updated, and you don't have to worry about who is providing the advice - We are the UK's only SRA Regulated Law Firm specialising exclusively in Independent Legal Advice (ILA). We are not an introducer, comparison site or a lead generation platform for other firms, we are an established SRA Regulated Law Firm, and hold the relevant Professional Indemnity Insurance solely for providing all types of banking and property related ILA.

    As we don't provide any other legal service, we are never in direct competition with you. We very much value our relationships with firms that offer services outside of ILA and we are keen to develop referral relationships - our aim is for us to collectively support our mutual clients.

  • Brokers and Intermediaries

    Our experts have provided advice to clients from inception of a loan agreement through to completion - including any security required by the lender. And so they can fully understand and appreciate your position as a broker or intermediary, working between the client and the lender.

    Two of iLA's co-founders worked within the Specialist Property Finance industry (co-owning a specialist finance brokerage), and so iLA has a unique insight into the requirements of lenders and understands the time pressures and constraints that can sometimes arise in transactions requiring ILA.

    When it comes to independent legal advice, we are here to remove this burden from you, and your client. From the moment you contact us, we will promptly confirm the lender's requirements and check that all the relevant documents have been provided by the lender (and in the correct format to avoid any issues at a later date).

    We also understand that 'the legals' can often cause a lot of frustration and delay, and so once we have received the ILA documents and on-boarded the client, we can usually provide the ILA (via an online meeting) within 2 hours. Following the meeting, we will immediately contact the lender to advise that the ILA has been provided and so the whole process can be completed, from start to finish, in less than a day.

    A large number of brokers already trust us to provide fast, reliable and efficient ILA, and help them to deliver a seamless service for their clients. If you would like to be a part of the iLA Network, then please don't hesitate to contact us today.

  • Lenders

    By choosing to work with us, you can ensure your risk is fully mitigated and that the borrower will be receiving the correct form of ILA to sufficiently protect your interest and security.

    Not only can we ensure your security is properly protected and mitigate any risk, but we also have experience within the lending and brokering industry which means we are in a unique position to fully appreciate the 'need for speed' and commerciality in some banking transactions (for example a bridging facility). We therefore offer a same day services for instances where the ILA is urgently required to complete the transaction, serving both yours and the client's interest to release the funds without any delay.

    Our extensive experience and knowledge means that the process is managed seamlessly from start to finish, minimising any delays or disruption.

    We provide ILA for all high street banks, lenders and specialist bridging, development and commercial lending, and we are continually looking to expand our iLA Network.
