Notary Public & Apostille Services


About Notary Public

If you are dealing with overseas matters, it’s usually required to use a Notary Public to authenticate documents. The primary role is to prepare, validate and certify documents under an official seal. If you are regularly having dealings abroad, it’s likely you’ll need the services of a Notary Public in order to correctly complete transactions. Whether you need counsellor legislation, Power of Attorney Notary or Apostille notary, our Notary Public will be able to help.

We can provide services throughout the Midlands and Yorkshire. Appointments can be held at the offices of Trent Law (Solicitors) in Nottingham, Derby or Sheffield, or by prior arrangement at your office.

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 at Trent Law (Solicitors), is a qualified Notary Public and authorised to practise throughout England and Wales. He is able to authenticate documents for use in rest of the world. He can notarise documents for you, and obtain any necessary Apostille or consular legalisation, and also arrange for onward couriering of your document abroad.

Dr Aamir Nawaz practices notary under Trent Notary Limited.

Notaries provide independent verification and witnessing of documents relating to transactions and matters abroad.

We always provide Notarial work with a fixed fee, to help you understand the cost of our services. However, some matters are more complex and it is not always possible to predict how long the task is likely to take. If this is the case, we will charge on the basis of how much time is spent on your matter.

Our minimum or base fee is £80, and hourly rate is £250.

We are not registered for VAT; therefore, no further VAT is payable on top of our fees.
