Welcome to Notarial Services

When it comes to personal or business 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.

We are fortunate enough to be able to call on the services of no less than three fully qualified and experienced Notaries Public, located in our Newcastle and Leeds offices.

The services provided by our Notaries Public for private clients include:

  • Preparing and witnessing powers of attorney for use overseas
  • Dealing with the purchase or sale of land and property abroad
  • Providing documents to deal with the administration of the estates of people who are abroad or who die owning property abroad
  • Authenticating personal documents and information for immigration or emigration purposes, or to apply to marry abroad or to work abroad

For business clients, our Notaries 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.
