Notary Public

Legal and Regulatory


Regulatory Information

I am regulated through the Faculty Office of the Archbishop of Canterbury

Services Provided

The provision of notarial services, including attesting the execution of documents for oversees use.  Obtaining an Apostille and legalisation can involve a wide range of factors depending on the nature of the instructions given and the requirements of the recipients of my Notarial Act in the destination Country. 

Price Information

In order that I can give clear guidance on the stages of the work required and my fees, including disbursements by way of Apostille, courier and postage etc I do ask for as much detail as possible at the outset of your enquiry.

Most services are based on a fixed price, by way of example there is usually a minimum fee of £80.00 per document.  For simpler instructions I provide a fixed fee quote and explain associated costs, including circumstances in which those costs cannot be stated precisely at the outset and/or may change over time.

Typically, my Notary fees for a Power of Attorney for Spain based on two parties signing the document would be £230.00.  There is no VAT payable.

Legalisation at the Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office for an Apostille currently stand at £45.00 each plus postage/courier or agents fees to handle the obtaining of the Apostille.

Other services which are more complex, once instructions are clear, I will set out the basis of my charges and provide a proper estimate of the work to be carried out and the fee to be charged and keep you updated.  If that estimate or associated costs change, I will inform you promptly.

Professional Indemnity Insurance

My professional indemnity insurance is £1,000,000,00.
