  • Step 1 - BOOK YOUR ILA

    We offer a same day service, and our team of dedicated experts are available 7 days a week between 8am - 8pm.

    You can book your ILA online now, or request an immediate call back to arrange a convenient time for your ILA. You can also provide us with copies of your documents at the same time as booking online, or we will be in touch as soon as you have made your booking to help guide you through the process and obtain copies of your ILA documentation.

    We will help guide you through the process and explain what documents we will need to provide your ILA. If you have a third party solicitor or mortgage broker assisting you, we can contact them directly to request the documents, if you would prefer - we want to help make this process as seamless as possible for you.


    Once we have received the ILA documents and on-boarded you as a client (using leading technology to ensure the process is as quick as possible) we can usually provide you with your ILA (via an online meeting) within 2 hours. Or you can let us know a day and time that suits you best.

    We will provide you with the advice online, via our iLA personalised meeting room. You will just need a laptop, phone or tablet to join the meeting.

    From our years of experience, the meetings tend to last for no more than 30 minutes, but our priority is always to ensure that you understand the advice and are happy to sign the agreements, and so we will spend as much or as little time as you need. We will also send a written letter of advice to you after our meeting, so you can take the time to read this and contact us should you have any questions.


    During our online meeting, you will sign the relevant documentation.

    Your signing will also need to be witnessed, and each lender will have a slightly different requirement for the witnessing. But don’t worry, our solicitors have a vast amount of experience working with most lenders and so will be well versed in establishing the lender’s requirements, prior to our meeting with you.

    We can guarantee that your ILA will be compliant and your documents are correctly witnessed, and we will also help you to return the documents to the correct party in the transaction. Our dedicated team is here to make sure that you do not experience any delays or inconvenience.

    Following our 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.
