Welcome to Notarial services

When it comes to business or personal matters with an international dimension, the services of a Notary Public are usually required.

The signing of documents before a Notary Public gives such documents recognised legal status in the country concerned.

The services of a Notary Public are crucial to legal matters with an international element, but the majority of law firms can’t call on the services of a Notary Public from within their ranks and have to recommend clients to go elsewhere to find a Notary Public.

Fortunately, that is not the case at Ward Hadaway.

For business clients, our Notary Public can authenticate company and business documents for use overseas and deal with corporate Powers of Attorney.

We can see clients at short notice and, where necessary, outside normal office hours and will agree a fixed, competitive fee in advance.

Whilst our Notary Public see most notarial clients at our offices in Newcastle, Leeds or Manchester, we can also come to your offices or home or wherever is convenient and feasible for you.

Our Notarial Services also extend to dealing with all “legalisation”/”apostille” requirements stipulated by the receiving countries.

This gives you the added advantage of certainty of fees, certainty of process, security for your important documents, speed of handling and speed of onward dispatch coupled with the provision of electronic copies for your records.

An international service, right on your doorstep.

Our services include:

Affidavits, statutory declarations, and sworn statements

Apostille and legalisation service

Assignments or registration of trade marks

Certified copies of documents

Declarations of single status when getting married

Liaison with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office

Lost passports, share certificates or other documents

Notarisation of company documents

Parent and child travel permissions

Property transactions: transfers, purchases, sales

Transfers of land, houses or shares

Witnessing a power of attorney
