Document certification in London

A certified copy is a copy of a primary document, that is endorsed to confirm that it is a true copy of the said document.

A certified copy may be required for official government or court purposes and for commercial purposes such as for financial or legal matters. It avoids the owner of important documents giving up possession of them which may lead to them being lost or damaged.

To be assured that certified copies of your identification will be accepted by the recipient, your point of call should be at a solicitors’ or accountant’s firm although the Money Laundering Regulations set out which other professionals can also carry this out for you. The list however is now somewhat limited.

Ola Leslie Solicitors offer certification services at competitive rates; the fees being dependant on the complexity of the requirement. Our certifications as solicitors are recognised within England and Wales.

Same day appointments are always offered and usually only take a few minutes. .

Examples of the certifications which we can assist with include the following:

ID certification
Proof of address certification
Visa stamp certification
Degree certification for legalisation
Academic results certifications
DBS background check certifications

Employment screening document certification
