Notary Public & Apostille Services
About Notary Public
If you are dealing with overseas matters, it’s usually a requirement that you use a Notary Public for document authentication. A Notary Public’s primary role is to prepare, validate and certify documents under an official seal. If you are regularly having dealings abroad, it’s likely that you’ll need notary services in order to correctly and compliantly complete transactions. Whether you need Consular Legalisation, Power of Attorney notary, Apostille notary, our Notary Public will be able to help.
Here at Trent Law Solicitors, we provide notary services throughout the Midlands and Yorkshire. Appointments can be held at our Nottingham or Derby offices, or by prior arrangement at your own premises.
Some countries will accept a Notary’s certificate alone as proof of legalisation, while others will require a further international certificate called an ‘Apostille’. An Apostille Notary is issued by the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office under the Hague Convention and is sometimes referred to as a ‘Hague Apostille’. Some countries may require further documentation authentication.
Dr Aamir Nawaz, a partner here at Trent Law Solicitors, is a qualified Notary Public authorised to practise throughout England and Wales. Practising under Trent Notary Limited, he is able to provide document authentication for use around the world. As well as notarising documents, he can obtain any necessary Apostille or consular legalisation on your behalf and arrange for onward couriering of your documents abroad.
Notaries provide independent verification and witnessing of documents relating to transactions and matters abroad.
Below are some examples of when you may require a Notary Public:
Administration of oaths and declarations
Attesting signatures and execution of documents
Certification of academic documents
Change of name documents (deed polls)
Documents for working abroad
Notarised copies of identification and other documents
Powers of attorney (preparation and execution)
Travel consents (these are often required by airlines)
We always offer a fixed fee for our notary services, but some cases may be a little more complex and therefore harder to estimate the duration of. In these cases, we will charge on the basis of how much time is spent on your matter. Our base fee is £85, and the hourly rate is £250.
