The first step to have your document notarised (UK spelling for ‘notarized’) is to send a scan or Microsoft Word draft of your document to us by email at [email protected]. We will quickly review the document and provide you with a quote, process and estimated timeframe, and we will let you know which supporting documents we will need to process your documents and if we need to schedule an appointment. This will save you time as we may not be able to assist you if you arrive without an appointment, and as we work between different offices and attend on clients at external locations, it is best to schedule an appointment to meet one of our notaries. For example, to notarise your signature on a document, we will always need to see the signatory’s original passport and proof of address* if they are a new client.
*Proof of address can be an original photo card driving licence, or an original bank or credit card statement, utility bill or council tax bill which was received by post and which is dated no more than three months before the appointment. If a bank or credit card statement is used as proof of address, this must show more than a £0 balance.
