Hello. Thank you for the question. It is my pleasure to assist your with this today.
Please bear with me and I will be online and off-line from time to time and therefore, may be delayed getting back to you. You will receive an email when I reply.
Can you give me the background to this matter in order for me to advise correctly - thank
Can I see the form please? It wouldn’t normally need to be witnessed by a solicitor, it could be witnessed by the office cat so to speak.
Is someone insisting that its witnessed by a solicitor?
If someone is insisting its witnessed by a solicitor, it’s not actually necessary although if it is just a signature, there is no reason why any solicitor shouldn’t do it for 20 quid or so. They will not do anything for nothing.
You have probably seen a pop-up offering you the chance of a telephone call at an extra cost. It is up to you whether you have a telephone call or not but do bear in mind that a 15-30 minute telephone call covers an awful lot of ground and you can get an awful lot of information in that time. So you can ignore it or go ahead or go ahead later. It’s your choice.
Meanwhile, we can carry on on here.
We are all based in the UK even though the site is administered in the United States.
Do you have anything from the council whereby they are insisting that this form is witnessed by a solicitor?
I don’t have a solicitor can say that they can’t deal with this unless they’ve seen the form.
I would need to see the form before advising you further because there is the facility to witness documentation remotely under the Covid provisions so it may be something that we could do for you but we are going to need the document is indeed any other solicitor is.
Thank you. You can attach it using either the paperclip, or the up arrow or the link at the end of the reply box. It depends which page you are on.
In your own time.
