WHAT IS A NOTARY PUBLIC?

A Notary Public authenticates documents for use in foreign jurisdictions where a solicitor’s authentication would not be accepted by the foreign authority or institution.

It is always recommended that you check with the overseas authority or legal expert of that jurisdiction to confirm whether you need a notary because this would cause delay and incur additional costs if you get it wrong.

Where can we fit in?

  • Authenticating documentation for use overseas such as Powers of Attorney;
  • Assisting in the estate matters of a deceased where they have overseas property e.g. a Villa in Spain;
  • Assisting in transferring overseas assets between family members;
  • Commercial contracts with overseas parties;
  • The setting up of overseas corporate entities;
  • Transactions involving property based outside of the UK; and
  • Litigious matters that involve overseas contracts or assets.
  • We have English and Farsi speakers in the office. Translators for other languages can be arranged on request.

If you have any questions or queries please get in touch with us and we will assist to help solve all your notarial matters.

What should you expect from a notary public?

WHAT WE NEED FROM YOU

As a Notary Public, Nathan Woodcock is required by the professional regulatory body to keep accurate records and to identify each client. Please have proof of identity and proof of address readily available.

If you require documents such as powers of attorney, affidavits or declarations, it helps (and it is cheaper) if you have a draft provided to you by your lawyer or notary from the foreign jurisdiction it is intended for. If you don’t have this, Nathan Woodcock can draft it to your needs.

OUR FEES

Woodcock Law & Notary Public prides itself on providing a professional, premium service at a reasonable cost. We price match and beat quotes wherever possible. Depending on your requirements, we can offer additional services including drafting of documents, legalisation, translations, and call out visits at an additional cost.

We charge notarial fees on a per document basis, starting from £100 plus VAT. On request, we will assess your notarial requirements and provide a fixed quote. For more complex certifications, we will charge according to the hourly rate of the instructed notary which will be advised at the outset.

VAT (Value Added Tax) will be applied to our fees if you are based within the European Union. Our VAT registration number is 351 0992 07. If you are based outside of the European Union, VAT will not be charged.

Where we incur any costs from third parties such as Translators, Consulates and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, these fees will be passed directly on to you as disbursements.

We will discuss these likely disbursements when providing you with a quote, and will not incur any disbursements without your consent.

Please note that these fees will be provided to you in good faith, however third parties may change their fees and procedures without notice.
