Shared Ownership Protection
The Shared Ownership Protection uses a Document assembly and drafting system (System). The System enables you to draft the Shared Ownership Protection (SOP) which is to be used when buying a property with more than one person. It does not provide legal advice nor does it represent a legal service. It is designed to collect relevant information and data to assist in the preparation of a legal Document. It is designed for use by persons who do not have complex legal requirements.
When using the System you will be asked a series of questions and the answers you give will dictate the content of the SOP produced. You and all parties executing the SOP alone are responsible for ensuring that the answers or any information that you give, is correct (this includes information in relation to the identity of any parties or signatories, their age or capacity). The System relies on you providing the correct information.
You must carefully check that the SOP produced, fully reflects all the parties wishes. If it does not, you should not execute it. It is your responsibility to ensure that the SOP is properly executed in accordance with the instructions that are provided to all the parties.
Before executing the SOP we advise you to seek appropriate legal advice so that you are fully aware of the terms you are agreeing to within the SOP.
By using our SOP service you agree that:
