What does a Notary Public do?

In England, a notary public is a qualified lawyer who holds an additional public office and is appointed by the Archbishop of Canterbury. Notaries public play a crucial role in legal and commercial matters by providing various services, including:

1. Authentication and certification: Notaries public authenticate and certify documents and transactions. They verify the authenticity of signatures, seals, and copies of documents, ensuring that they are true and accurate representations of the original.

2. Witnessing and attesting: Notaries witness the signing of documents and attest to their validity. They verify the identity and capacity of individuals involved in legal transactions, such as contracts, affidavits, and powers of attorney.

3. Notarisation of deeds and documents: Notaries public can prepare and notarise various legal instruments, including deeds, agreements, contracts, and statutory declarations. They ensure that these documents meet the legal requirements and have been executed properly.

4. Verification of facts: Notaries may be called upon to verify facts, such as birth, death, marriage, or educational records. They confirm the accuracy of such information and provide official certification when required.

5. International document services: Notaries public often deal with documents intended for use in foreign countries. They can authenticate and certify documents for international use, including notarising documents for immigration, overseas business transactions, or adoption processes.
