Notary Public Service

Email Surb Kumar at this firm is a Notary Public. The notarial profession is distinct from the solicitors’ profession as a notary will sign and impress his personal seal on a document. In his role as a Notary Public, Surbjit attests documents for use abroad. Attesting can be described as a countersignature to a document.

The signature and seal of a notary carries force abroad and that is why when a document is signed in England for use abroad, it often has to be notarized. The person who is to sign the document normally has to appear before the notary and produce identification to satisfy the notary.

Although this list is not exhaustive, the types of documents attested by a notary include the following:-

Powers of Attorney for use in foreign country

Marriage declarations



Statutory Declarations

Company documents

Land and Property documents for foreign country

Once a document is notarized it may need to be legalized by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. If the country in which the document is to be used is a party to The Hague Convention of 5 October 1961 then an apostille to the document will be required. Details of the countries that are party to the Convention can be found at . The apostille is to confirm that the signature of the notary is recognized by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

It may also be necessary for the document to be legalized by the Consular office of the intended country. This will depend on the country in which the document is to be used.

We can provide an estimate of costs of the notarial work. We can only do this once we have sight of the document to be notarized. The document can be brought to our office or faxed to us.
