Our Notary Fees

Like most notaries, we charge fees based mainly on the amount of time that we spend notarising documents.

This work is not only the time spent in meeting you, but also in giving any preliminary advice, considering and notarising the documents, dealing with the Foreign Office or consulate, preparing the records that we have to keep, and any travel time.

Our current charge is based on £260 per hour, with a minimum fee of £70. Please note that if we are asked to notarise 2 or more documents, or there are 2 or more people to sign, the fee is likely to be £90 or higher. We do not currently charge VAT. We may charge more if the work has to be done out of normal hours or if it involves a matter of unusual complexity or value.

The fee is normally payable at the time of your visit, and we are happy to accept payment by cash, or cheque with banker’s card. Please note that we do not at present accept credit or debit card payments for our notarial work. If your documents need to be sent to the Foreign Office or consulate, or there are other special arrangements that need to be made, then this will incur additional charges. We are happy to give an estimate upon request.
