Notary brochure

Public Notaries in England and Wales.

Notaries are a small and highly specialised branch of the legal profession who are qualified to prepare and certify documents that are to be signed in England and Wales but which are for use abroad. Notaries have a duty to the transaction and to the authenticity of the documents they are notarising. Unlike a solicitor their duty is not to the “client” seeking to have a document notarised.
