Witnessing, certification & administration
A Notary Public (or just a Notary), is a Solicitor who holds an additional qualification and as a consequence can attest and authenticate documents which will be used in other countries.
Common scenarios are:
- Witnessing documents and signatures
- Certifying copies of original documents
- Administering Oaths.
Depending on the country where the document is to be used, notarised documents may need to be ‘legalised’ by the Foreign & Commonwealth Office, and sometimes by the consulate of the country concerned. Our Notaries can deal with all of these requirements. The act of Notaries are accepted throughout the world.
At TWM Solicitors, we have two Notaries. Nigel Harding in Leatherhead and Adrian O'Loughlin in Guildford. Please contact us and we will be happy to discuss your requirements. We can also provide an out of office (home) service for people unable to attend a TWM office, again by prior appointment.
If you need the services of a Notary, you will need to prove your own identity (passport) before notarising can begin. The Notary will also have to satisfy him/herself that the client understands the nature of the document and that the documents are valid.
