Q. What exactly is a Notary?
A. Briefly, a Notary is an international commissioner for oaths, whose signature and seal are recognised throughout the world, and whose services in this respect are usually needed only where there is a foreign element to your requirements.
Clients will often require the services of a Notary Public when dealing with overseas matters such as businesses or properties abroad or involvement in litigation in foreign courts.
Legal documents for most countries when signed outside the jurisdiction usually have to be notarised. A Notary generally acts as a legally trained impartial witness to authenticate and certify the execution of documents required or intended for use outside of the UK.
