Swearing and Affirming and Certification

Your Solicitor may have prepared a document for you to swear or affirm and asked you to contact a local solicitor to do that for you, that is because the same solicitor who prepared the document cannot also witness your signature to it. 


Alternatively, you may need Certified Copies of a document to send to another professional, for example you may need to certify a copy of your passport to send to a bank.  A certified copy is exact copy of an original document which is then certified and signed by a solicitor as being a true copy of the original.


All monies received for these services are used to host a Garden Party on the first Friday of July each year to raises funds for and awareness of the Alzheimer’s Society.  Garden house Solicitors have been successfully hosting this Garden Party for many years and have raised thousands of pounds for the Charity.  Everyone who has used this service is invited to this most enjoyable event where we serve a delicious complimentary lunch and drinks.
