What is a Notary Public?

A notary public is a specially qualified person who can verify the authenticity of a document in order to reassure a foreign country that the document is valid and can be relied on.  The notary will check a person’s identity, their legal capacity, and their understanding of the document to be verified.  They will also check a person’s authority to sign the document.

Why this service?

Sometimes a document that is to be used in a foreign country will have to be checked and certified by a Notary Public before it will be accepted by the receiving jurisdiction. The services of a Notary Public may be needed by a UK citizen, or by a non-UK citizen who wishes to use documents in the UK. In certain circumstances, a business may also need the help of a Notary Public.
