On occasion the documentation that needs to be Notarised may not be in English. If the document is in a different language, the Notary can organise for the document to be translated first.
This is important so that the Notary is confident that you understand the nature of the legal document that you are signing. Translations add further complexity into the matter so if there is a time constraint then please seek assistance as soon as possible.
Preparing To See A Notary
Although every case will be different, you will need to ensure:
- You make an appointment
- You bring evidence of your identity to the appointment, such as a current valid passport and/or driving licence and a recent utlity bill or bank statement with your name and address on it
- You understand any documents involved, particularly if it is not in English
- You bring any documents to the appointment that are relevant to the matter
What Is The Cost?
The fee will be based upon the amount of time that is spent dealing with your matter, however a quotation will be provided in advance. All quotes are subject to VAT.
For more information, or to arrange an appointment with Stephen Gordon, call 0330 017 6302* or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
