The profession of a Notary Public is different from that of a solicitor, although most of the Notaries in England and Wales are also solicitors. Most (but not all) of the functions of a Notary relate to personal or business transactions with a foreign element. Most Notaries undertake work for commercial organisations engaged in international business, as well as for private individuals. The most common tasks undertaken by Notaries are:
The principal duty of a Notary is to ensure that a transaction is properly carried out. A Notary’s duty is owed not only to the client who attends before him or her but also to anyone who may rely on the document and to governments or officials of other countries.
These people are entitled to assume that the Notary will ensure full compliance with the relevant requirements, both in this country and abroad, and to rely on the Notary’s register and records. The Notary therefore has to take great care to minimise the risk of errors, omissions, alterations, fraud, forgery, money laundering and the use of false identity.
It can therefore save time, expense and mistakes if, as long before the appointment as possible, the client can let the Notary have the originals or photocopies of the documents to be notarised, any letter or form of instructions given about what is to be done with the documents and evidence of identification.
Formal identification will be required by the production of the original or the client’s current passport or, if not available, a current driving licence with photo, along with a utility bill showing the client’s current address.
