Certification of documents

It may be easier for you to supply us with copies of ID rather than the original documents. We need to ensure that all documents are certified if they are copies.

These can be certified by solicitors, accountants, commissioner for oaths or bank/building society staff. Here’s what must be included on each page of all documents to be certified:

  • The words “certified true copy” written or stamped

For the person who is certifying them:

  • Full name, date and signature
  • Profession
  • Business name, address and telephone number.

We’re not able to accept copies of documents without this information. If you provide us with any original documents we’ll return these to you as soon as we can.
