Our Blog

Welcome to our Blog, we will try to make this entertaining as possible! We will include examples of the type of documents that we have notarised in the past and common questions and queries that our clients have had. Our blog will occasionally be an irreverent look at all things that interest us, from how Tom Cruise pretends to play a notary (and what are the differences between English notaries public and those from the States) to finance, food, house prices and more. We hope that most of the blog is enjoyable, informative and that you get to know more about what we do.

What Blog Topics will we cover?

This blog is intended to provide you with a clearer understanding of what we, as notaries public, do each and every day. We will aim to cover such blog topics as:

  • What is a notary public, what their duties are to individuals that sign documents before them, who regulates notaries public in England and Wales, what duty do the notary public have to the transaction itself and how to become qualified as a notary public;
  • What is an apostille and why do you need to get one for your documentation after it has already been notarised. What is the Hague Convention abolishing the requirement for the legalisation of foreign public documents;
  • What is meant by legalisation, legalising your documents and consular legalisation (and how each terms is interchangeable). Why do you need your documents to be legalised by an Embassy or Consulate in the UK when they are to be sent overseas?;
  • What specific issues do notaries public need to consider when notarising documents;
  • Why there are so many differences between what an English notary public does and those notaries public in other countries; and
  • Some examples of typical documents that we have been asked to notarise, including notarising a passport, notarising a power of attorney, notarising an affidavit or statutory declaration and notarising copies of documents.

We will try to make each blog as interesting as possible and we would love to hear from you about what you think of our blog posts
