Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some answers to the questions I am most frequently asked about the services I provide.

What is a Notary Public?

A Notary Public is a highly specialist lawyer who deals with documents for use in foreign countries. A Notary’s signature and seal are recognised worldwide. If you require a document to be accepted as authentic in a foreign country you may need a Notary Public to notarise that document.

What does a Notary Public in England do?

The client’s signature will be witnessed and the notary will make sure that the formalities required by both English law and that of the country where the document will be used are observed.

The identity of the client must always be checked, usually by seeing various documents including a current passport or driving licence and separate proof of address (see further under “Identification” below.)

The notary will need to know that any facts stated in the document are correct and may need confirmation to that effect. One of the main purposes of notarisation is to ensure that the document can be relied upon and the notary must therefore take steps to ensure that this is so.

Before I can carry out any work for you I have to formally identify you.

This is my professional duty as a Notary Public and also an essential part of the Anti-Money Laundering Regulations and other legislation.

I will need to see one of the following documents (in order of preference):-

  • Current passport
  • Driving licence with photo
  • UK government or police issue certificate bearing a photo or other means of identification
  • Identity Card (EEA states)

I also need proof of your address. This can be satisfied by production of the driving licence original or one of the following original additional documents (not copies from internet) showing your current address:-

  • Utility bill - not a mobile phone account
  • Bank statement - not a credit card bill
  • Council Tax bill

The first two items above in proof of address should not be more than three months old.
When I am instructed by a company or other body I will also need (in addition to the above documentation for each signatory) to see originals of the following:-

  • Evidence of identity of the authorised signatory (as listed above)
  • A copy of the current letterhead (showing the registered office if it is a company)
  • A Letter of Authority, Minute, Resolution or Power of Attorney authorising you to sign the document

In addition for companies: Certificate of Incopororation and of any Change of Name, a copy of the Memorandum and Articles of Association, Details of Directors and Secretaries. In all instances I will be carrying out company searches, which may have an effect on the level of fees charged.

In addition for partnerships, clubs etc: A Partnership Agreement; or relevant Trust Deed; or Charter, or Constitution/Rules.

Foreign Language documents

Your documents may be written in a foreign language.  If so, they sometimes come with a translation into English. If not, and particularly if you do not speak the language in question, it will be necessary for an accurate translation to be supplied by a competent translator, here or in the country where the document was prepared. I will need to be sure that you understand the contents and effect of the document.

Making an appointment

If you require my services you will need to make an appointment.

Please do not hesitate to phone or email me if you need an initial discussion before making an appointment. I will be happy to help.

When we have arranged an appointment for the notarisation of your documents I recommend that you take a little time in preparation as follows, please:

  • Forward by email copies of your document and any communication from whoever sent it to you so that we can establish how it is to be executed and if apostille/consularisation is required.
  • Ensure that you have your ID documentation ready for each person who is to be a signatory.
  • Ensure that in the case of a company or other entity you are in possession of the additional documentation required (as mentioned above). It is useful if this can also be produced to me before our meeting.
