Notary Services

Why Use A Notary?

Simon Rock is a fully qualified Notary Public able to carry out all kinds of notarial transactions.

The role of a notary is to verify signatures and documents so that they will be acceptable for use in foreign countries.

Reasons you would need the help of a notary are

  • Buying or selling property abroad
  • Going to work in a foreign country and needing your educational or professional certificates verified
  • Conducting business or Court proceedings abroad

Simon can also assist with legalisation of documents at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, and with foreign embassies in the UK. You may be required to obtain an Apostille, which is an internationally recognised certificate that the notarisation is authentic and can be accepted in a foreign country.

Make Your Appointment

You will need to make an appointment at the offices of Robinson Allfree in Ramsgate and bring with you your passport, recent proof of address such as a utility bill or bank statement, and the documents needing to be notarised. If you can e-mail before the appointment a copy of the document needing to be notarised then this will help in assessing what needs to be done, and the likely costs of the notarisation.

Notaries in England are regulated and supervised by the Faculty Office of the Archbishop of Canterbury in Westminster.
