    Well done! In the UK you need to have documents certified by a solicitor, notary, commissioner for oaths or Justice of the Peace. Make sure they not only sign and date etc. but also use their official stamp! Also beware that getting something notarised is usually around 70 whereas if you have a solicitor that you work with for other things, they will often certify a document for a few pounds. I am sure it will all be fine!
