A notary is a lawyer appointed as such by the Faculty Office of the Archbishop of Canterbury. A notary is authorised to certify and attest to certain documents which need to be used abroad.

Notaries form an independent branch of the legal profession. By signing and sealing a document, a Notary gives credence to that document and it will be accepted without question in all jurisdictions around the world.

Notary Services

A Notary will deal with a number of different documents and requirements. Many Notaries provide work for commercial firms engaged in international trade and also for private individuals.

"Notarisation" of documents is done by the notary issuing a certificate authenticated by the notary's official seal of office. Notarised documents can be relied upon internationally.
