WELCOME TO MARK LAMBERT NOTARY PUBLIC

The primary role of a Notary Public in England and Wales is to authenticate the signing of legal documents for use in overseas jurisdictions.  The authentication process involves the verification of the identity, capacity, authority, and will of the person signing the document. A Notary Public has a duty to the underlying transaction, and must remain impartial at all times.  Once a document has been notarised, the receiving authority can be confident that all of the necessary formalities and checks have been carried out.

In addition to notarisation, many countries require the signature and seal of the Notary to be verified by way of an Apostille issued by the UK Foreign Office.  Countries that are not signatories to the 1961 Hague Apostille Convention will require the Apostille itself to be verified by their own Embassy or Consulate in the UK.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

A Notary Public in England and Wales is appointed and regulated through the Faculty Office of the Archbishop of Canterbury. Their primary function is to attest legal documents for use abroad. By attesting a document, they are confirming the identity, capacity, authority, and will of the person who signed it. A notary has a duty to the underlying transaction and is therefore impartial. Each notary has their own seal that they attach to the document. When a document is notarised, an overseas authority can be confident that all of the correct formalities have been followed and that the document is legally binding.

An Apostille is a certificate attached to a document by the UK Foreign Office that verifies the signature and seal of a UK public official. The process of obtaining an Apostille is known as ‘legalisation’. Some counties require the Apostille itself to be verified by their own Embassy or Consulate in the UK. This process is known as ‘attestation’ or ‘Embassy/Consular legalisation’

A Notary Public has an obligation to identify appearing parties and to keep records of the identification produced. Please bring a valid/in-date passport, or other government issued photo ID, and a proof of address not less than 3 months old to your appointment.

My fees are generally based on time spent in preparation and at the appointment, subject to a minimum of 30mins for any notarial act. My hourly rate is currently £275, so 30mins would be £137.50. I do not charge VAT. I will provide you with a quote before the appointment. These fees do not include postage, and legalisation if it is required. For legalisation costs and information, please see the ‘Legalisation’ page of my website.
