Notarising corporate power of attorney

There are points of focus that a notary, must thoroughly scrutinise for successful notarisation e.g.:

-The name and personal details of the individual who signs on behalf of the company.
– The way in which the person in detail is connected to the company.
-That the signatory is of sound mind while signing the documents and fully comprehends the content and effect of the document.
-The current standing and important details of the company.
-That the document has been executed properly by the company through the following of English Law.

In addition to legislations relating to powers of attorney, legal provisions that deal with entities (such as limited liability partnerships and companies registered abroad) and other general rules as outlined in companies acts 2006, few UK companies can have their own internal rules which can force methods of execution of documents to become more restrictive. It is possible for example, that a company will have a rule that a number of directors will need to sign for corporate powers or attorneys.

This will require our Notary Public to effectively inspect the individuals signing the document until he is satisfied that correct protocol has been used. After confirming necessary information,  our Notary will prepare the notarial certificate. This certificate will be issued with the Notary’s signature and seal bound securely to the document.

What is the role and duty of a Notary Public?

A Notary Public (also referred to as a ‘Public Notary’ or simply as a ‘Notary’ is a public officer & is a specialist lawyer authorised to witness, authenticate or certify documents for use in countries around the world. Solicitors & Barristers in the UK owe a duty of care towards their clients. In contrast a Notary Public owes a duty of care to the document he is notarising.

Can a Notary Public notarise documents in foreign languages?

The short answer is yes. In certain instances it may be necessary to change a lettered translation of the document into English. Our Notary Public can advise you on whether this is required – If this is required the Notary can assist with obtaining a certified translation. If you do require notarisation of a document which is in a foreign language, please do contact our Notary Public & he will be happy to explain any specific requirements.

Who do you provide your notarial services to?

We provide notarial services to both our individual & business clients. We have years of experience in accommodating the needs of both of our individual & corporate institutions. Please visit our pages for ‘Services for Individuals’ & ‘Services for Businesses’ for more details.

What is an Apostille & do I need it?

An Apostille is a certificate issued by the foreign or commonwealth office in the UK & is the authentication of a document for use in another country.

The Apostille certificate confirms the signature, seal & stamp of the Notary Public to be genuine so that it is accepted when presented in another country outside the UK. The Apostille assures that any documents fraudulently ‘notarised’, purporting to be a Notary Public is not recognised & therefore reduces the risk of fraudulent documents being circulated around the world.

If the document being notarised is to be received by a country that is a signatory to the Apostille convention of 1961 – it is likely that you will require an Apostille. The purpose of the Hague Apostille Convention of 1961 is that once the country becomes a member/signatory there should no longer be any requirement for separate consular or embassy legalisation as long as the document has been notarised and apostilled. Our Notary Public will be happy to advise you on whether the recipient of the document will require an Apostille. If an Apostille is required, our Notary Public can advise you on the process of obtaining one, the cost & can arrange this for you.

Do you provide same day legalisation services?

We cater for all your urgent notarial needs & have a robust system in place to cater for your urgent needs. Our in-house courier will ensure that if required with an additional fee, the Apostille is obtained on the same day & country specific consular or embassy legalisation is obtained the next day if this is applicable.

Do I need consular or Embassy legalisation for the country where my document is going to be used?
Do I need to bring identification documents with me when coming to notarise my documents?
How much will it cost me to notarise my documents?
Do you provide home visits/ visits to my office/ weekend/ evening appointments?
Do I need consular or Embassy legalisation for the country where my document is going to be used?

Although many countries have become members/signatures to The Hague Apostille convention of 1961 – there still remains many countries around the world that are not signatures/members of the convention. This means that if your document is being received in a country who is not a signature/member is it likely that further legalisation of the document will be required by the consular or embassy of the receiving country.

Our Notary Public has comprehensive knowledge of the legalisation requirements for all the countries around the world & will be happy to advise you accordingly in relation to your specific requirements.

Do I need to bring identification documents with me when coming to notarise my documents?

To comply with money laundering regulations, a Notary Public must confirm your identity. Our Notary Public would expect you to bring with you your current unexpired passport or your full photo card driver’s license as a proof of identification. You will also be expected to produce proof of residency which is no more than 3 months old – this can be by way of bank statement or utility bill issued to you.

For more information on specific identification requirements please check our ‘Identification’ page

How much will it cost me to notarise my documents?

The cost will depend on the number of documents you require notarising. Our charge for notarising one document is £50. We do not charge VAT & there are no hidden charges. If you require an Apostille, consular or Embassy legalisation, the cost will depend on the number of documents & how quickly you require the documents to be apostilled &/or legalised.

Do you provide home visits/ visits to my office/ weekend/ evening appointments?

Our Notary Public offers home or office visits & out of hours service (including weekends) by prior appointment. This service will incur on additional charge. Please do let us know if you require our out of hours/office service.
