Statutory declaration

A Statutory Declaration is a legal document defined under the law, which is similar to a statement made under oath, but, unlike an oath, it is not sworn in front of a solicitor.

Statutory Declarations are commonly used where a person needs to confirm (affirm) something to be true in order to of satisfy either a legal requirement or a regulation when there is no other documentary or satisfactory evidence available. For example, this could be a seller making a declaration to confirm that they have used a private road to gain access to their property for a specific period of time (otherwise known as a right of way), or where boundaries have changed over the years that are not so defined in the legal documents.
