I can arrange legalisation – sometimes known as adding an ‘Apostille’ where appropriate. The Apostille is a stamped certificate affixed to UK issued documents by The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO). The FCO will check the document has been genuinely issued by a UK notary public.
Sometimes additional consular verification is necessary – I can advise. To check current requirements visit https://www.notary.co.uk/consular-legalisation.html
Document in a foreign language? No problem.
If the document is not in English, the Notary can still certify it if he or she is satisfied that you fully understand the nature of the legally binding document about to be notarised. Some foreign language documents can be legalised; your MyNotary notary will be able to advise. Your MyNotary notary can also arrange translation with a company we use Leominster, Herefordshire if necessary.
Notary services ‘out of hours’
Please contact me for weekend and evening appointments. Enquiries can be made via telephone or email. I can come to you, or to keep the cost down, individuals can arrange a convenient location.
Short notice meetings
I appreciate that notarial work tends to be urgent and am happy to fix appointments at very short notice, subject to availability.
What ID is required?
Please bring your passport with you and proof of address (such as a utility bill dated within the last six months). This information will enable me to be satisfied of your identity and to attest that you have appeared before me and signed the document in front of me.
Estimates and Charges
I quote a fixed fee at the start of an enquiry there is a minimum fee of £80 no VAT plus any legalisation and agency costs. Consular agents will charge VAT I do provide a basic C of O (Commissioner of Oath) service for which the statutory fee applies. I provide notarial services only.
It is difficult to estimate in some cases how much time will be required to complete a matter, bearing in mind the variety of circumstances that may arise. However, guidance as to likely costs will be given on receipt of instructions and sight of documents. Any estimates given will be based on the information available at the time and, although given in good faith, will not be binding.
How to pay
Payment may be made by cash, cheque, bank transfer or invoiced by prior arrangement. Sorry I do not accept card payments.
