Solicitors Certificates – Signing Off With Certainty
Sometimes, the most simple and straightforward tasks can hold the greatest potential for problems – this is certainly the case with solicitors’ certificates. Irrespective of whether the certificate is being sought by “walk-in” or long-standing clients, practitioners need to be extremely diligent in their review of the relevant documents, the advice provided to the clients and their own file management. This may be difficult given time and costing limitations, not to mention the pressure from clients to “simply sign off” on what they may view as just another administrative loan document.
In this session, our presenter, will highlight some of the common – and serious – errors made by practitioners as well as provide useful tips on how to minimise risk exposure.
