Please first send us a scan or Microsoft Word draft of your document by email to [email protected] so we can check that we can assist you and let you know which supporting documents you might need to show us so that we can process your documents. You can then confirm an appointment with us by telephone or email, we usually have good availability to book around two or three days in advance.
In most cases, the client needs to meet one of our notaries in person (either at one of our West End, City of London or Victoria offices or externally at your office, residence, or other agreed location) and show the notary their original passport and proof of address (not a photocopy).
If we do not need to certify any signatures on your documents, e.g. just certified true copies of original ID documents or verified copies of academic certificates, we may not need you to come in to meet us and it might be possible for you to just drop off or courier your original documents to our office, along with a consent signed by the person the documents were issued to.
Once we have seen your drafts, we will confirm the exact process and exactly which documents you will need to show us. If you would like to meet one of our notaries outside of our office, we will provide you with a quote for this once you provide the postcode for the meeting and the proposed meeting time and date.
We book appointments externally or in our West End, Victoria or City of London offices 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday. Please note that our Victoria and City of London offices are by appointment only. If you would like us to meet you at your office, residence, or another external location, we will provide a quote for our attendance fee based on the postcode of the proposed meeting place – our attendance fees are calculated on an hourly basis, including travel time to and from the appointment from our office and assuming that the meeting will take no more than 30 minutes.
Exceptionally, appointments out of office hours can be arranged, if you would like to request an out-of-hours appointment, please send us an email with your preferred time and location and we will provide you with a quote for this. You can collect your completed documents from our West End office 9am to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday.
