Notary or solicitor for stat declaration?

Recommended Posts

Hi PIO,

 

My OH has to do a Statutory Declaration regarding his employment, but just checking if it needs to be witnessed by a solicitor or a notary? And what the difference is? (That seems like a reallly thick question, but we need to get it done by the right person) :laugh:

 

Thanks!

Notary public is some kind of lawyer/solicitor. I contacted one (in SE London) re the million or so certified copies required for a partner visa application, who quoted me something like £185+VAT per hour and thought that it might take an hour and a half to do the checking etc and photocopying and signature etc (not actually 1 million copies more like 20). Ended up going to a local solicitor who charged £5 to witness signature, £5 per page for certified copies and gave a bulk discount on that.

Check with your family and friends and see if anyone knows a JP, they can sign them off and often cheaper than solicitors. Try phoning the local magistrates court see if they have a JP who would do it for you, Phone around for various prices. Solicitors can vary a hell of a lot with the price.

I was lucky I found a JP who just signed and did not charge me.

Thanks, Pablo!

 

I thought it was a solicitor who had to sign it off, but when I rang up to find out about it, they asked me if a notary needed to do it? So.....I'm guessing if other people have had their's signed off by a solicitor or JP, then that's the way I'm going to go.

I was quoted £5 per page by a local place, so that's not too bad...

Thanks again!

Wow!! £185 plus vat. Are they nuts??

Phoned a local solicitor and was quoted £5 per page, so I can live with that!

Thanks!
