When clients call in to ask whether we sign Guarantor statements (GS), we notify them that we do SO LONG AS the GS does not require us to state that we know the client personally. If it does then we can’t do it.
We do have the option in some cases to strike out the sentence that states that we know the client personally and replace is with “checked ID” but you have to get the client to find out if that’s ok (for example, this is usually ok on Jamaican Passport forms). It’s not ok on Canadian passport form. However, with Canadian Passport forms you can obtain a form from the Passport office called “Statutory Declaration in Lieu of Guarantor”. We can notarize that.
