Here at Sheppersons Solicitors we can also offer the services of a Notary Public.
A Notary Public is a specialist lawyer who can witness or certify documents for use in foreign countries. By virtue of the Notaries signature and official seal, authorities in other countries will be assured that the relevant checks have been carried out.
As an example, when buying a property abroad you may need to give your overseas lawyer power to deal with the purchase. A Notary Public can watch you sign a Power of Attorney and then notarise this document to ensure that it is accepted in the country involved.
Examples of where you may need a Notary Public:
You may need a Notarised document in the following cases:
- Sending a certified copy of your passport
- Certify exam certificates for use abroad
- Property transactions abroad
