Signature Witnessing

When it comes to important legal documents, ensuring that signatures are properly witnessed is a crucial step to validate the document’s authenticity and legality.

What You Need to Know

Signature witnessing is the process of having an impartial and qualified individual, known as a witness, confirm that they have seen a person sign a document. 

This witness provides their own signature, name, and contact details to vouch for the fact that the signature on the document belongs to the person it claims to be. Here at Tann Law, our qualified solicitors can act as your witness, and will ensure the process is conducted correctly and legally.

When Do You Need Signature Witnessing?

Signature witnessing is required in various legal and financial situations, including:

Legal Documents: Many legal documents, such as wills, contracts, powers of attorney, and affidavits, require a witness to attest that the signatures on the document are genuine.

Property Transactions: When buying or selling property, certain documents, like property deeds, may need to be signed and witnessed to make the transaction legally valid.

Financial Transactions: Banks and financial institutions often require signature witnessing for various financial agreements and documents, ensuring the authenticity of the parties involved.

Statutory Declarations: Individuals making statutory declarations for legal purposes often need a witness to confirm their identity and signature.
