    correct?

    Hi,

    could you please tell me which of these is correct:

    1) The amount will be returned after 30 days from the date of signing the certificate.
    2) The amount will be returned following 30 days from the date of signing the certificate.
    3) The amount will be returned at the expiry of 30 days from the date of signing the certificate.
    4) The amount will be returned on expiry of 30 days from the date of signing the certificate.
    5) The amount will be returned after the elapse of 30 days from the date of signing the certificate.
    6) The amount will be returned after a lapse of 30 days from the date of signing the certificate.

    Or are there any better expressions?

    Thanks a lot!

    5) The amount will be returned after the elapse of 30 days from the date of signing the certificate. "after 30 days have elapsed"
    6) The amount will be returned after a lapse of 30 days from the date of signing the certificate.

    Without fuller context it is actually not easy to suggest alternatives. The two I have ticked are the clearest statements.
