Notary Services

A Notary Public is a specialist lawyer who holds an internationally recognised public office and who is authorised to authenticate documents for use abroad by creating notarial acts and may be required to authenticate documents for use in transactions abroad.

A Notary provides a guarantee of certain matters in the act; that the act is lawful and has not been entered into as the result of fraud or violence, that the act is not part of a money-laundering scheme or a scheme for the transfer of terrorist funds, the identity of the person appearing before the notary is guaranteed, as is that persons mental and statutory capacity, understanding of the document and their willingness to be bound by it.

Most Notaries are also solicitors, but the notary profession is entirely separate, with a different regulator, their own rules, and code of practice. The rules which affect Notaries are very similar to the rules which affect Solicitors.

They must be fully insured and maintain fidelity cover for the protection of their clients and the public.

They must keep clients’ money separately from their own and comply with stringent practice rules and rules relating to conduct and discipline. Notaries must renew their practising certificates every year and can only do so if they have complied with the Notaries Practice Rules.
