John McLauchlan Notary Public
I am pleased to be able to offer Notary services. My Notarial Faculty is an additional professional qualification to my Law Degree and my admission to the Law Society. I set out below an outline of the common tasks of a Notary such as myself.
Also as a member of the oldest legal profession in England and Wales, I can as a Notary do any form of legal work for you except for taking cases to court.
I am regulated through the Faculty Office of the Archbishop of Canterbury. I am also regulated by the Legal Ombudsman.
I offer home and office visits as well as seeing people at my home.
I also offer out of office hours and weekend appointments including Sundays.
I am prepared to see clients at any reasonable time of day including evenings by prior arrangement.
To obtain a quotation or to make an appointment to see me, please see the contact me page.
What does a Notary Public do?
A Notary Public is a specialist lawyer who can witness or certify documents for use in foreign countries. By virtue of the Notaries signature and official seal, authorities in other countries will be assured that the relevant checks have been carried out.
As an example, when buying a property abroad you may need to give your overseas lawyer power to deal with the purchase. A Notary Public can watch you sign a Power of Attorney and then notarise this document to ensure that it is accepted in the country involved.
