About Legal Quest
Independent Qualified Validation Auditors & Part 35 Experts on Mortgage Securitisation Claims (MSC’s)
Here at Legal Quest we are a multi-disciplined firm who originally pioneered all aspects of potential redress, resulting from the sale, transfer or assignment (securitisation) of a UK mortgage by a UK lender. Over the past 15 years we have carried out extensive research into the complex and ‘hidden’ dealings of the financial sector, specifically relative to the way Mortgage Securitisation takes place and the impact it has on the unsuspecting borrowers, along with the lenders direct breaches of FCA, MCOB and other UK legislation in doing so.
Having built a comprehensive library detailing a significant number of the UK lender’s Mortgage Sale Agreements, related documentation including the actual Prospectuses, we are regarded as the UK’s leading specialists and ‘Part 35 – Expert Witnesses’ in this niche emerging claims market.
In order to be considered unbiased and totally independent, we must have no interest in the outcome of any MSC. From 6th September 2019, all legal aspects of the actual claim process are now conducted by Mortgage Securitisation Claims Ltd. (MSCL), which is wholly owned by Camellus Law LLP, the former legal team of Legal Quest , with absolutely no direct or indirect relationship remaining with Legal Quest .
To maintain absolute independent, impartial and unbiased ability to produce the initial Quantum Validation Audit (QVA) reports, followed by the formal Part 35 Expert reports, the Founders of Legal Quest instructed the formation of a separate entity - Q. V. Auditors Ltd., in order to enable it to be able to carry out these tasks without any conflicts of interest arising. This entity has no common prior ownership, control or common directors and is therefore completely remote and independent
- Our founders have over 150 years’ collective experience within the legal and insurance mediation/loss adjusting professions.
Samweb (UK) Ltd continue to be FCA regulated as Appointed Representatives for a Chartered Firm of Insurance Loss Adjusters. We act as their qualified and regulated appointed agents and mediators, on major and complex insurance claims for both UK domestic and commercial policy holders.
Acting for MSCL, Samweb (UK) Ltd under separate FCA permission, will submit a full Data Subject Access Request (DSAR) for MSCL applicants, under an agreed 'Waiver Scheme' for MSCL, whereby the standard fee contribution of £260.00 is 'waived.' Only a token £1.00 cost is taken, to ensure the MSCL applicant is a genuine person, with a formal Quantum Validation Audit (QVA) report to be provided by Q.V. Auditirs Ltd and provided to the MSCL panel law firm on any valid Mortgage Securitisation Claim (MSC).
Acting for each of MSC's panel law firms, Q.V. Auditors Ltd will prepare a full Part 35 Expert Report with a full forensic 'audit' of the entire mortgage account of each MSC Claimant, including a full synopsis of the securitisation quantum, all repayments including interest, charges and fees, together with the statutory 8% surcharge amount which will be the basis for the actual MSC filings.
