If you are obtaining a loan, lenders will often require a personal guarantee from the directors of the borrower company. If you agree to become a guarantor for a company loan (including a Self Managed Superannuation Fund (‘SMSF’) loan), lenders will often require that you obtain a Solicitor’s Certificate of Independent Legal Advice.
This certificate must be obtained from an independent lawyer and is designed to ensure that you fully understand the obligations and risks associated with being a guarantor of a loan.
In such cases, we are able to provide you with the Solicitor’s Certificate of Independent Legal Advice.
In order to obtain the certificate, the following steps must be taken:
First you need to meet with our lawyers to discuss the terms of the loan documents and the guarantee.
Obtaining this certificate ensures that you are informed and confident about the decision of becoming a guarantor, and protects both you and the lender by ensuring that the guarantee is legally sound and that you are fully aware of your obligations and risks.
