What is a Power of Attorney?
This is a document that once you have executed it, it will confer power onto another person(s) to act on your behalf or for a company. Powers of Attorney are governed primarily by the Powers of Attorney Act 1971 and, in the case of companies, the Companies Act 2006.
Can a Notary give legal advice?
The job of a Notary is to prepare, certify, attest, and authenticate documents destined for international transactions. This public office comes with limitations and they cannot give partisan advice to clients. They must remain neutral and impartial. They will only advise on the formalities of the process.
They can act in non-contentious areas such as conveyancing and probate.
Solicitors acting as notaries do not typically advise clients on the documentations, and instead an independent lawyer is advised for legal advice.
What is Notary Authentication or Legislation?
This means the document is confirmed as originating where claimed, i.e. the notarised signature and seal are genuine. It normally means having a consulate stamp on the document from the relevant jurisdictional office.
The purpose is to show and or meet pan-jurisdictional requirements; namely, prove the document was signed as claimed.
Signatory countries to the Hague Convention have agreed to accept an Apostille instead, though this is not an absolute rule.Notary Public Mayfair including Notary in Luton and Notary Public Sunderland and Notary Public Hammersmith Fulham , Notary Public Barking Dagenham as well as Notary Public Stockport and
What is an Apostille?
This is a certificate issued by the relevant authority. In the UK this is the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. It confirms the signature on the document is indeed by that person.
What do I need to bring to my appointment?
Notaries must be able to identify the client. Therefore, they require the following:
- Photographic I.D. such as a Passport or Driver Licence
- Proof of Address dated within the last three months
- Business Clients need additional proofs to show the company’s existence [see below]
Please note that aside from identity, your notary must be satisfied you have the legal capacity and or understanding of the document(s) you require notarising.
They also must be satisfied as to lawful authority if signing on behalf of another party e.g. a limited company, Power of Attorney, etc.
Importantly, your notary will not attest documents unless they are completely satisfied that they have seen the originals and any signatures are genuine. Do not bring copies as opposed to originals.
If in any doubt as to what documents suffice and any other requisites, please feel free to ask at time of making an appointment.
What about corporate entities / charities etc.?
If you are to sign documentation on behalf of a charity, company, organisation, or incorporated body then your notary will require certain proofs.Notary in Basingstoke including Notary in Windsor, Notary in Ascot and Notary Public Clapham as well as Notary Public Durham ,
