Notarial Services

A Notary is a qualified lawyer – a member of the third and oldest branch of the legal profession in the United Kingdom. Notaries are appointed by the Court of Faculties of the Archbishop of Canterbury and are subject to regulation by the Master of the Faculties.

They must be fully insured and maintain insurance cover for the protection of their clients and the public. They must keep clients’ money separately from their own and comply with stringent practice rules and rules relating to conduct and discipline. Notaries have to renew their practising certificates every year and can only do so if they have complied with the rules.

Many documents require a notary and include those to:

  • Prepare and authenticate powers of attorney for use overseas
  • Deal with purchase or sale of land and property abroad
  • Authenticate documents for immigration or emigration purposes, or to apply to marry or to work abroad, including authentication of professional and educational qualifications and preparation of capacity to marry via statutory declaration or oath
  • Authenticate company and business documents and transactions for foreign contracts or the formation of foreign subsidiary companies
  • Deal with documents relating to foreign wills and estate administration

Fees start from £150.  Our Notary, Keith F. Baker, will be able to help you.  Please contact him directly to book an appointment on 020 7751 9883.
