What is a Notary Public?

A Notary Public in England is a lawyer who holds an internationally recognised public office. A Notaries' job is to certify documents to be accepted as evidence for use anywhere in the world. A document attested by a Notary Public will be acceptable as genuine to the judicial or public authorities for use in any country, by virtue of the Notary's signature and official seal.

What does a Notary Public in England do?

A Notary Public checks the identity of the signatory as well as their capacity and intention. This involves the checking of certain documents such as a passport or driving license and separate proof of address. The Notary will witness the signature of the person involved and ensure that the document is signed in accordance with English Law and also in accordance with the legal requirements of the country for which the document is required.

A notary will take care to verify the contents of the document and check any facts and information necessary in order to be able to act in a reliable manner. Anyone receiving a notary's document will assume that they have checked all the facts in it and taken the responsibility for them unless they make it clear that this is not the case.

Records kept by a Notary

A notary will keep a full set of the originals or copies of all the official documents that they make and this serves as a permanent public record. They must make these available to all those who have a proper right to see them including their client and any other parties involved in such documents. They also refer to the record to make copies when needed.

Documents in Foreign Languages

Documents presented to a notary may be in a foreign language. The notary must ensure that both they and the client understand the meaning and effect of the document. Notaries do not usually give advice about the meaning or effect of a document or transaction. It is important that the client shows the notary any correspondence or advice that he has been given by others.

A Notary Public may also be known as a Notario Publico, Notaio, Notario, Notar or a Notaire.

What is Legalisation?

Some documents to be used outside the UK may need to be legalised. Legalisation means that the Foreign and Commonwealth Office puts a certificate on the document confirming the Notary's credentials. The Foreign Office certificate, for some countries, is known as an Apostille.

Legalisation is a double check to make sure that the notary signature is genuine and recognised and this is done by government departments and embassies. Documents are checked by foreign embassies to make sure that the notary's signature matches the one on their records.
