Notary Public

/media/pages/library/notary-public.jpgThe role of a notary public is to authenticate documents for use outside of the United Kingdom including all U.S documents. A notary may certify the proper execution or signing of any sort of document that is to be used overseas and, if required, to confirm that it is binding in English law. After identifying the person or persons concerned and the substance of any fact or event, a notary may issue a certificate confirming such fact or event.

Notaries are members of the third and oldest branch of the legal profession in the United Kingdom, appointed by the Archbishop of Canterbury and subject to regulation by the Court of Faculties.
