Notary Public FAQ

Below are some of the most common questions about what a Notary Public does. Please contact us to arrange an appointment of make an enquiry.

What is a Notary Public?

A Notary Public is an officer of the law, whose duty and role is to prepare, attest, authenticate and certify deeds and other documents for use anywhere in the world. A Notary Public's signature and seal validates a document for worldwide use as it is proof to the receiving jurisdiction, of the fact that the document was attested by the Notary Public. Notarial work requires a high standard of care as it is relied upon not only by you, but also by third parties, foreign governments and officials. As Notaries we have a responsibility to protect against error, omission, alterations, fraud, and forgery.
