The A-Z of Lane Cove – J is for JP

jp Lane Cove Justice of the Peace

One of the questions that ITC gets asked the most is “Where can I find a Justice of the Peace (JP) in Lane Cove?”

Some of you might be thinking – why would I need a JP?! Well, the main functions of a NSW registered JP are to:

– witness a person making a statutory declaration
– witness a person making an affidavit
– certify that a copy of an original document is a true and accurate copy

If you would like more information about what JP’s do, you can find out here.

So, where do you find a Justice of the Peace in Lane Cove?
