What is a Statutory Declaration?

A statutory declaration is a legal formal document confirming that the statement is true to the best of the knowledge of the person making that declaration. A statutory declaration is governed by the Statutory Declarations Act 1835.

For a valid statutory declaration, the information within the document should be true and must be signed in the physical presence of a commissioner of oaths, solicitor, or notary public.

Commissioners for Oaths

A Commissioner for Oaths is an authorised person who has been given permission to witness the signing of legal documents such as statutory declarations, affidavits and more.

The Lord Chancellor appoints a person as a Commissioner for Oaths and gives them the power to administer oaths or take affidavits. All practising solicitors are automatically Commissioners for Oaths and have powers to administer oaths and witness affidavits.

Who can sign the statutory declaration?

For a statutory declaration to be valid, it must be signed by the declarant and a witness.

A “declarant” is a person making the declaration and a “witness” is a person witnessing the declarant sign the declaration.

Who can witness the signature?

For the statutory declaration to be valid it must have been witnessed and signed by one of the following:

  • A Commissioner for Oaths
  • A Solicitor
  • A Notary Public

If you are using a solicitor, then you cannot use the same solicitor acting for you in a legal matter. You must use an independent solicitor to witness your signature.

Writing a statutory declaration

You can write your own statutory declaration by using statutory declaration forms or templates available online. If drafting a statutory declaration yourself, you make sure that you follow the requirements set out under the Act.

On the other hand, we at Wembley Solicitors can help you with the drafting or preparation of the statutory declaration.

To ensure that your statutory declaration is impartial, we at Wembley Solicitors can either help you with the drafting of your statutory declaration or the witnessing & signing of your declaration.

In other words, if you need our legal help with the preparation of your statutory declaration then you need someone else to witness your signature.
