A Notary Public is an officer of the law who holds an internationally recognised public legal office. The duty and function of a Notary Public is to prepare, attest, authenticate and certify deeds and other legal documents, for use anywhere in the world.
His or her signature and official seal renders them acceptable, as proof of the matter attested by him, to the judicial or other public authorities in the country where they are to be used.
Clients often require notarial services when dealing with overseas matters. A Notary mainly acts as an impartial and legally trained witness to authenticate and certify the execution of documents required or intended for use outside the UK.
It is important that a Notary public is contacted as early on as possible, as requirements vary from country to country and further authentication from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office or applicable Consulate may be necessary.
By virtue of the international status of his office, the signature and seal of a Notary is recognised as evidence of a responsible legal officer in most countries of the world.
