If you’re sending documents through the post which have a photo or signature on them you should send copies and not the originals. All copies of documents must be certified. This means that they have been checked and verified by bank/building society employees, solicitors, accountants, commissioner for oaths, independent financial advisers or the Post Office as being exactly the same as the original. Please note they cannot be certified by a member of your family and the person certifying the documents may charge a fee so check with them.
Here’s what you need to do:
1) Take your documents to the person certifying them and ask them to add to the first page of each item:
2) All other pages in the documents must be signed by the person certifying them.
If the documents have been fully certified on each page we will also accept them.
