Certified Document Hours

09 July 2017

With the changes to the Anti-Money Laundering legislation which now applies to more entities (like law firms) we have experienced an increase in the number of people requesting certified copies of documents.

We have also experienced an increase in the number of people wanting to swear affidavits or make declarations.

The constant interruption to our working staff during the day is affecting their ability to deal with the files for clients who are paying us to do their work in a timely manner.  As a result we are going to make some changes.

With effect from 16 July 2017, we will be available to certify copies of documents, swear affidavits and take declarations during the following times:

  • Tuesday 4.00pm – 5.00pm
  • Wednesday 12.00am – 1.00pm
  • Thursdays 9.00am – 10.00am

We hope that by offering those different times we will be able to meet everyone's requirements.

Anti-Money Laundering

09 July 2017

With the changes to the Anti-Money Laundering legislation which now applies to law firms, we are required to undertake Due Diligence for all our clients.

This has resulted in additional work for our staff and extra resources are required to ensure our compliance with the legislation.

As a result, we will be charging a one-off fee of $250 plus GST on each file opened for a new client – irrespective of the number of persons to be identified on that file.

If Enhanced Due Diligence is required we reserve the right to charge a further fee depending on the work required.

For our existing clients we will be charging a one-off fee of $100 plus GST.

These fees will be charged in addition to any estimate or quote given to you.

North End Law Summer Holiday Hours:
Our office will be closing on Friday 20 December 2019 at 5.00 p.m.
and will re-open on Wednesday 15 January 2020 at 8.30 a.m.

We extend to you the compliments of the Season.
