SAMPLE - AFFIDAVIT OF LOSS


credits-filesishare.blogspot.com
Sometimes we lose our personal items such as bags, certificates, keys, documents and wallets all the time. In trying to retrieve our lost items, we are sometimes required to file a police report and depose to an affidavit of loss in court. A lot of people often find this very confusing and don’t know where to begin. Hopefully this blog will guide to in the right direction.

 Note that a police report can only be filled at the Police Station and no other person is licensed or capable of giving you a police report. An Affidavit on the other hand can only be sworn to at a court before a Commissioner for Oaths or a Notary Public. Find below a sample of an Affidavit of Loss, which can be modified to suit your particular situation. Please note that all the facts stated in this sample affidavit are fictitious.
