“Often a signature from a solicitor isn't enough - you need a Notary Public. We play a crucial role in ensuring that legal documents are authentic and legally binding. We are internationally recognised as the people to witness and certify documents for abroad.”

Laura Srodon LLB

Director, Solicitor, Notary Public

What are Notaries?

We are an independent (and the oldest) branch of the legal profession, with origins in Roman times. Notaries are appointed by the Court of Faculties of the Archbishop of Canterbury and are subject to regulation by the Master of the Faculties.

In common law countries such as the UK, the main role of notaries is to deal with international matters.

For individuals, we will notarise documents for many different situations, including but not limited to:

  • Buying or selling property abroad
  • Proving you are still alive so you can receive a foreign pension
  • Confirming your degree or other certificate is genuine so you can work in another country
  • Giving permission for your children to travel with you
  • Proving that your instructions to a foreign bank are genuine
  • Witnessing affidavits and statutory declarations for court actions abroad
  • Sponsoring family or friends to visit the United Kingdom
  • Making arrangements for you to marry overseas

Notarised documents for companies are often used to:

  • Prove that the company exists, and the person signing a document is authorised to do so
  • Validate a Power of Attorney in favour of an agent abroad
  • Assert trade mark and other intellectual property rights in foreign jurisdictions
  • Confirm that copies of product certificates issued in the UK are genuine
  • Apply for visas for staff working overseas
  • Ensure that contracts and other documents are legally effective where they are used

Notarising documents is a specialised service, and although different countries have different requirements, notarised documents are recognised as valid throughout the world. Our aim is to make it as straightforward for you as we can, so that the documents that you and we sign are effective wherever they are to be used.

Please call us on 01242 235202 or email enquiries@davisg.co.uk if you have documents to be notarised.
