About this document

By definition, a statutory declaration tells a unique story. There can thus be no template which provides a precise story applicable to your own situation. We have therefore provided as one document, three different example declarations.

From the example text given, you will have some idea how to frame your own story.

In particular, examples and advice are given on the opening and closing words.

The three examples given relate to:

  • The validity of a document in a litigation matter;
  • The position of a disputed boundary in a garden;
  • Lost title deeds.

Note: lawyers often refer loosely to “an oath” or “swearing”. Oaths are occasionally required, but more often than not, they mean a “declaration” which is “declared” not “sworn”.

Very Informative

Good afternoon

I found your service informative and helpful. The only draw back was my declaration was for a different matter than the templates provided yet I was still able to adapt and successfully use it. I thought the cost was reasonable too.
I would use your services again.

Many thanks
