Surbjit Kumar is a Notary Public and is Regulated through the Faculty Office of the Archbishop of Canterbury.

The notary service includes work required by private individuals and companies. The notary service includes the following:-

a. Taking instructions and receiving draft documents
b. Arranging a meeting
c. Attending to client and discussing draft documents and notarising the document if acceptable
d. dealing with legalisation subject to client instructions

The notary service can include notarising documents such as powers of attorney, certifying documents and attesting declarations on various documents such as statutory declarations, affidavits and oaths.

The timescales for notarising documents can be between 3 to 10 working days and completion of the notarised work is subject to all requisite information and documents being available to the notary to complete the work.
