What services does the Notary Public provide?

Notaries must verify for each client their identity, legal capacity and understanding of the document as well as their authority if signing on behalf of another party such as a limited company so they are legally valid for use overseas.

In England and Wales, a notary public is typically a qualified solicitor and may carry out other types of legal work.

What is legalisation?

Documents may need to be ‘legalised’ or ‘apostilled’. This refers to the process of verification by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO), embassy or consulate where the Notary Public’s signature is checked. An ‘apostille’ is the certificate attached to the documents.
