An English Notary Public may be described as a specialist lawyer whose main business is to verify the proper execution of English documentation going abroad and, where necessary, to issue an appropriate certificate. That certificate, or in some cases the original document itself, will be signed by the notary and he will also attach his notaries’ seal of office which is personal to him and totally unique. This procedure is a formal one, and necessarily so, for what the notary says and so certifies will be relied upon throughout the world.

A Notary Public needs to be familiar with many aspects of international law and the way the law operates in other countries. So if, when you come to see us, you have a question which relates to international law, to foreign company law or any other international law matter, it is likely that we will be able to help you.
By signing and sealing a document, a notary verifies the authenticity of the facts set out in that document and, apart from legalization at either the Foreign or Commonwealth Office or at a foreign embassy or consulate, no other formal requirements will be needed by the foreign jurisdiction in which the document is required. In addition other specialist work is also carried out by us as and when required.

Whenever possible, I offer a set fee for notarising documents. I also offer discount for repeat documents serviced at the same time and to repeat clients.
We are registered with the faculty office and are therefore bound by their rules of conduct and due diligence. We are also insured and contribute to a Compensation Fund.
The primary work of a notary is to prepare documents; to formally witness the execution of documents; to authenticate the contents of documents and to administer oaths and declarations. By this process the notary attempts to make the document acceptable to and therefore receivable by, foreign jurisdictions.
