How long should it take for a lawyer to send me a statutory declaration? I have requested, in writing, from a suburban lawyer who held my deceased Mother's land title a statutory declaration, as requested by Land Victoria. The lawyer claims the title was picked up by my Mother and they have a receipt to prove this. Land Victoria still has them on its system as holding the title hence the need for a stat dec. So far it has taken 2 weeks despite a phone call, letter, and 2 follow-up emails (which they have not answered). How long is it reasonable to wait? Is there anything I can do to hurry them along?
