Matthew Bransgrove used his vast experience in mortgage law to write chapters in his mortgage law textbooks on mortgage drafting. This involved reviewing the security documents of all the major lenders in Australia and considering the last 10 years of case law on questions involving mortgage drafting.
In 2001 Matthew drafted his first comprehensive mortgage memorandum and complimentary suite of ancilliary documents. These documents have been punctiliously revised over the subsequent years. Whenever there are cases which significantly impact on the rights of lenders, these state of the art security documents are updated and constantly refined. We use these documents for mortgage advances carried out by this firm. We also license our security documents, at reasonably rates, to lenders to be used by other solicitors or in-house. These documents are based on battle-hardened (court tested) and refined over many years.
We act as consultants in designing in-house procedures, including precedents and underwriting checklists, for lenders who issue their own mortgage documents.
