    I have to complete a statutory declaration and/or an affidavit for the land titles office. They will then present it to the Registrar General of NSW.

    I reside in America, but I am an Australian citizen.

    Should I :
    1. Use local forms or Australian styled forms?
    2. Can I make a Statutory declaration / affidavit myself using a template?

    Yes, I would use an Australian styled document. You can do up your own document on Word or whatever, but you have to follow the format and include specific wording and features as appear in the forms you can download online. I would just ask the Titles Office to send you the form for the type of statement they want you to fill out, you will need to find a person who is able to witness it overseas as well.
