Notary Public

A Notary is an officer of the law who holds an internationally recognised public office. The Notary's duty and function is to prepare, attest, authenticate and certify deeds and other documents, for use anywhere in the world. His signature and official seal renders them acceptable, as proof of the matter attested by him, to the judicial or other public authorities in the country where they are to be used.

When dealing with overseas matters Clients often need a Notary. A Notary mainly acts as an impartial and legally trained witness to authenticate and certify the execution of documents required or intended for use outside the UK.

It is important to contact a Notary as early on as possible because requirements can vary from country to country and it may be necessary to obtain further authentication from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office or applicable Consulate.
