If you need to sign a document and then have it notarised, normally you will need to sign the document in the presence of one of our notaries and show the notary your original passport and proof of address*. For us to notarise some documents, e.g. documents signed on behalf of a company or other institution, we will need to see further supporting documents such as authorising documents (an authorising board minute, power of attorney or authorised signatory list) and proof of existence and capacity (company register extracts, certificates of incorporation and articles of association).
If you need a copy of your documents notarised, you will need to show, courier or drop off the original document to our office so that we can take the copy.
Please send a scan or Microsoft Word draft of your document to us at [email protected] and we will confirm which documents we will need in order to notarise your documents for you. If you have been to see us before, you may be able to have the document notarised remotely if you send the signed version to our office–please send us your draft by email and we will check if remote notarisation is possible in your case.
*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.
