What is a Notary Public?
Notaries Public are legal professionals who help prepare, attest, authenticate and certify deeds and other official documents with an international element. Their primary objective is to make sure that any document being notarised has the full legal effect in the country to which it relates.

What types of matters are undertaken by a Notary Public?
There are a range of matters which require the expertise of a Notary Public.

Matters related to international shipping such as ships’ protests or ship sales and purchases also often need the services of a notary.
Individuals could ask a notary to help prepare and witness powers of attorney for use overseas, or when dealing with the purchase or sale of land and property abroad. Couples getting married abroad or people who need certified copies of documents such as examination certificates, proof of qualifications and passports may need to instruct a Notary Public. Rotherham residents who require any help with the administration of the estates abroad or want to draw up a will which will have force in other countries can also be well advised by members of the profession.
But there are all kinds of other matters with which notaries can help. Some documents need a notary stamp for use abroad such as those for medical professionals applying to work in other countries. They can also authenticate statutory declarations or affidavits and oaths.
After a document has been successfully notarised, it can then be accepted as evidence that the true and correct person has signed it in full understanding of its contents and that any information given has been correctly verified.
