What services does a Notary Public provide?

A Notary Public (or Notary) authenticates and legalises documents, particularly those for use abroad. A Notary's seal and signature will verify to the authorities in that country that the relevant checks have been carried out and that the client's signature is genuine.

A Notary will have regard to the legal requirements both of the country where the document is to be used and of England and Wales. For example, if you are buying property abroad, it is often necessary to give your overseas lawyer a power of attorney to act on your behalf. That power of attorney will need certification by a Notary.

How much does Notarisation cost?

Although the level of charges depends on the time taken for each notarisation, I will try to give a fixed quotation wherever possible. If this is not possible I will give an estimate of likely charges. In either case I will also give a quotation for the sums that will be paid to others, such as the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, the embassies etc.

Please contact me to obtain a quotation/estimate.

Documents in a foreign language

If a document requiring notarisation is in a foreign language it may be necessary for it to be translated by a qualified translator, who will then have to swear a statutory declaration certifying the translation as true. This will need to be done in front of the Notary.

What is Legalisation or Apostille?

Many countries require a Notary's seal and signature to be certified as genuine by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. This called an apostille. I can arrange this if required.

In addition some countries require the certification by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to be certified as genuine by their own embassy/commercial legation. Again, I can arrange this if required.

Independence and Rules

A Notary is a qualified but independent officer of the courts and must not do anything to compromise this position. All Notaries are subject to professional rules and standards, and most are or have been qualified as silicitors. They are bound to comply with the rules on money laundering. They must also carry insurance against negligence and dishonesty.

Public Records kept by a Notary

A Notary will keep a register of all the official documents that he makes. This is a permanent public record which can be accessed by everyone who has a right to see them, including the clients.

Conflicts of Interest

A Notary must act independently and impartially. A Notary may act for both (or all) parties in a transaction, but must identify potential conflicts of interest where they arise, and try to resolve them. If resolution is not possible, the Notary cannot act for any party.
