POWER OF ATTORNEY

A power of attorney is a written authorisation to represent or act on another’s behalf in private affairs, business, or some other legal matter. The person authorising the other to act is the principal, grantor, or donor (of the power). The one authorised to act is the agent or attorney or, in some common law jurisdictions, the attorney-in-fact. A Lasting Power of Attorney lets you appoint someone to make decisions on your behalf. It is normally used when someone is unable to make their own decisions.

 
At Reliable Law Services Ltd, we can:
  • Draft a power of attorney
  • Witness signatures of principal, grantor or donor of the power

CHANGE OF NAME BY DEED POLL

A deed poll is a legal document that proves a change of name.

CERTIFICATION OF DOCUMENTS

When you apply for something like a bank account or mortgage or you sponsor someone to visit you or join you in the UK, you may be asked to provide documents that are certified as true copies of the original.

 
Being Solicitors and Commissioners for Oaths, we can certify copy of a document as true copy of the original. You must produce the original document for us to certify a copy of the same to be true copy of the original.

STATUTORY DECLARATION

A statutory declaration is a legal document defined under the law of certain Commonwealth nations. It is similar to a statement made under oath, however, it is not sworn. Statutory declarations are commonly used to allow a person to affirm something to be true for the purposes of satisfying some legal requirement or regulation when no other evidence is available. They are thus similar to affidavits (which are made on oath).

 
Depending on jurisdiction, statutory declarations can be used for:
  • Declarations of identity, nationality, marital status, etc, when documentary evidence is unavailable
  • Declaring the intention to change one’s name
  • Affirming the provenance and nature of goods for export or import
  • Statements of originality for patent applications
At Reliable Law Services Ltd we can:
  • Witness the signatures of the declarant(s)
  • Draft a statutory declaration

AFFIDAVITS

An affidavit is a written sworn statement of fact voluntarily made by an affiant or deponent under an oath or affirmation administered by a person authorised to do so by law. Such statement is witnessed as to the authenticity of the affiant’s or deponent’s signature by a taker of oaths, such as a notary public or Commissioner for Oaths.

 At Reliable Law Services Ltd can:
  • Draft an affidavit
  • Administer an oath for an affidavit
