What is a Notary Public?

A notary is a member of the third and oldest branch of the legal profession in the United Kingdom. We can trace our origins as far back as Roman times!

A notary’s signature and seal are recognised throughout the world as an evidential safeguard under the law of international documents.

Usually a document to be sent to another country will only be accepted there if it bears a notary’s signature and seal.

A notary owes a duty of care not just to a client but to anyone in the world who relies upon a document bearing this signature and seal – this includes governments and other foreign officials.
