Statutory declarations and deeds
I need a lawyer to sign a document
Sometimes you need an independent solicitor simply to witness your signature to an oath or a declaration or to certify a photocopy. For example, you may need a solicitor to witness you confirm the truth of and sign an oath relevant to applying for probate. A solicitor can also certify a photocopy as being a true copy of the original so that you do not need to send off the original document. All solicitors are Commissioners for Oaths.
My fee for this simple procedure is £5 per document witnessed and £2 for each exhibit attached. (for example a copy Will attached to an Oath)
Please note that not all documents are appropriate for us to witness or sign. There are also certain documents that can only be certified by a Notary Public in which case you would need to look elsewhere.
I need a lawyer to verify my identity
If you simply need us to certify a photocopy of your identification documents as being a true copy of the original, we charge £5 per document copied.
If we need to sign a certificate certifying your identity, our fee depends upon the nature of the document. For example, we charge £40 to sign an ID1 form.
I need a lawyer to draft a declaration
If you need us to draft the document for you before signature, our fee varies depending upon the nature of the document, starting at £60 including VAT for a Change of Name Deed. We can quote you a fee over the phone and have the document ready for you when you come in.
