What is a Notary?
A Notary Public is part of the oldest branch of the legal profession in England and Wales. We are regulated by the Faculty Office of the Archbishop of Canterbury.
The role of a Notary Public, in most cases, is to act in an evidential capacity by verifying the identity of those signing in their presence and ensuring the correct formalities are observed. The signature and seal of a Notary Public will be accepted in a foreign country.

Where can I see you?
At my offices (see Contact Us), at your home or place of business
What times are you available?
Appointments are available during normal office hours from 9am to 5pm. I am happy to arrange out of hours appointments for business and professional clients and where urgent notarisation is required.
Do I need an appointment?
Yes. Please call me to arrange a time before visiting my office.
What will it cost?
It really does depend on what is required. Please call me to discuss in greater detail (Fees).
Do you need to see the documents first?
Except in cases of straightforward certification of copy documents, it is helpful to send me the document (preferably by email in Word form, so that I can fill in any blanks) before we meet.
This will also enable me to check whether I need any further information and will save time.
What do I need to bring with me?
In addition to the documents that require notarising, you will need identity documents and cash or a cheque for payment of fees and disbursements.
