A Notary Public is an officer of the law who holds an internationally recognised public office and their signature and seal is recognised worldwide as evidence of a responsible legal officer. Usually a solicitor, a Notary Public is qualified to draw, attest or certify deeds and other documents, including Wills, property transfers and Powers of Attorney.
Do you actually need a Notary Public?
This is a question that’s best answered by the authority issuing the document. Once you’ve established that you do need the services of a Notary Public, it’s important you choose one with years of experience in liaising with foreign embassies, commissions and consulates; a personable, approachable individual with the expertise to clarify what can be a complicated business.
