I engaged with Lisa McKenna for the sale of my property in Dublin. Lisa allocated Lina to gather everything needed and help me through the process. Lina was such a pleasure to work with and very efficient and great at calming my nerves when we came across glitches. I needed a quick sale and I believe from talking to friends who went through the process themselves it was probably a record. Both Lina and Lisa got me through in great timing, were very professional, knowledgeable and efficient. I highly highly recommend their services. Thank you ladies!

Sold our home and bought our new home with Lisa & co. carrying out the legal aspects necessary. Lisa went above and beyond in her efforts to close both transactions. When selling the buyer's solicitor had concerns and wanted their clients to make it legally binding that they wouldn't be liable for issues in the future. Lisa stepped in and ultimately got the transaction over the line. When buying Lisa kept us on top in terms of getting home insurance, life assurance for mortgage approval which helped us close in a time efficient manner. Also went above expectations carrying out some duties that lay with the seller. + Recommended McKenna & Co to a friend who wasn't satisfied with their solicitor. McKenna & Co stepped in and accelerated the closing.

FAQ's About Swearing

What is an affidavit and why do I need to swear it?

An affidavit is a written statement set out in the form of a declaration for use as evidence in court proceedings. You must swear or affirm the truthfulness of its contents before a solicitor or a commissioner for oaths, as it serves as your testimony under oath.

What is the difference between an oath and a statutory declaration?

An oath is a verbal promise to tell the truth, often made with a hand on a holy book, used in legal contexts where solemnity is required. A statutory declaration is a written statement declared to be true in the presence of an authorised witness, used outside of court settings such as property transactions or certain formal declarations.

How quickly can I get an appointment for swearing a document?

We strive to accommodate our clients as quickly as possible. For urgent requirements, we can often arrange appointments on short notice. Contact our office to discuss your specific needs and schedule an appointment.

What do I need to bring to my appointment for swearing a document?

You should bring the document that needs to be sworn, a valid form of identification (such as a passport or driver’s license), and any exhibits referenced in the document. Please ensure all parts of your document are complete before your appointment to avoid any delays.

Can I swear a document if I am not a client of McKenna & Co Solicitors?

Yes, we can assist with swearing documents for non-clients. However, we recommend that anyone seeking such services contacts us beforehand to confirm the specifics and ensure that we can accommodate your needs.

What are the costs involved in swearing a document?

The costs for swearing documents are nominal and regulated. Typically, the fee is £5 for the oath and £2 for each attachment. For more detailed pricing, including notarisation and certification of documents, please contact our office directly.

What if I do not wish to swear on a religious text?

At McKenna & Co Solicitors, we respect all personal beliefs. If you prefer not to use a religious text, you can make an affirmation, which is a legally binding declaration made without reference to a religious text.

Is there any preparation required on my part before swearing a document?

It is important that you review your document thoroughly before the appointment to ensure that all information is accurate and complete. Any errors discovered after swearing must be rectified with a new document and another swearing process, which can incur additional costs.

Can McKenna & Co Solicitors certify copies of my documents?

Yes, we can certify copies of most documents as true copies of the original. However, certain documents, such as birth, death, and marriage certificates, must be certified by the issuing authority. Please bring the original documents for verification.

What if I need a document notarised?

While we do not have a Notary Public on staff, we can facilitate an introduction to a local Notary Public who can assist with notarising your documents, particularly those needed for international use.
