Prior to our certification, we may require you to sign our declaration form declaring the authenticity of the document(s) produced for cerification.
For certain certification, such as educational certificates, letters, and bank statements, the cerificate is based on visual inspection of the original document produced and reported to us as genuine and original, and we will stamp our usual “Disclaimer” on the document.
The “Disclaimer” stamp will, amongst others, state that our Notary Public is unable endorse or verify as to the truth, accuracy, legality or otherwise in respect of the contents of the document or the purposes for which it is used, and person relying should verify the authenticity with the issuing authority/entity.
Our Notary Public reserves his right not to perform any notarial service and is not obliged to give any reason.
You should make your own photocopies from the original documents and bring the originals and the copies to our office for certification. If you require us to make copies, we will charge according to the Law Society Recomended rates.
