If you believe that a loan is appropriate for you, your solicitor will complete and submit an application to us on your behalf. You will be asked to approve this by email.
Before your loan is approved we ask you to take independent advice from another solicitor to make sure you understand the loan and the implications if you don’t repay.
Funds to pay invoices are requested by your solicitor and only released with your approval, giving you full visibility of your spending. You can use the loan at any point in the proceedings, as and when needed. The interest rate is fixed for the whole length of the loan, not compounded. You'll receive regular statements showing exactly what funds are being drawn.
When your case is concluded, repayment is made from your final settlement. Typically this means your solicitor will repay Novitas first from any proceeds before sending you the remaining amount.
