Why do I need a Notary Public?

A Notary Public is a highly specialist lawyer who can witness or certify documents for use abroad. By the addition of the Notaries signature and official seal, authorities in other countries will be assured that the relevant checks have been carried out.

For example, when buying a property abroad you may need to give your overseas lawyer power to deal with the purchase. A Notary Public can watch you sign a Power of Attorney and then notarise this document to ensure that it is accepted in the country involved.

What is an Apostille or Legalisation?

A notarised document may sometimes need to be further authenticated by having the U.K. Foreign and Commonwealth Office confirm the validity of the notary's signature and seal.

The requirement for this will depend on the country involved. This is done by legalisation by the use of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office's official certificate attached to the document, known as an apostille. These are internationally recognised due to the Hague Convention.
