ii) A letter from a legal representative confirming the validity of signatures on each third-party declaration provided.
This must confirm that the declaration from the third party contains the signatures of the people stated. It must be an original letter and not a copy, and it must be from a legal representative permitted to practice
The letter must clearly show the following:
• the name of the legal representative confirming the details;
• the registration or authority of the legal representative to practice legally in the country in which the permission is given
• the date of the confirmation letter;
• your name and third party’s name;
• that the declaration from the third party is signed and valid
• ID numbers of both parties, place of issue, expiry date, issue date
The quickest and cheapest way to do this is to call into ANY solicitor's office. Usually you won't need an appointment if you tell them it is for a statutory declaration. and the fee should be very small - always ask first though!
The solicitor and you will have to be present. If any solicitor offers to do it without you and your friend being in the same room with the solicitor it will be invalid. I do not have time to meet anyone but just do bear that in mind and probably best to find the solicitor geographically closest to you to do it.
