Individual Services  |  Notarial Services

At Astle Paterson we have two Notaries, Martin Astle and Jean Paterson. Notaries are primarily concerned with the authentication and certification of signatures and documents for use abroad. Following the authentication and certification of the documents, we can arrange for the documents to be couriered and legalised by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, who will attach an Apostille to the document and return it to us for its immediate return to you.

In every case, an individual will need to be identified by the Notary by the production of an item of photographic identification (such as passport or photo card driving licence) plus an additional original document such as a recent utility bill or bank statement bearing name and present address.

As well as the authentication and certification of signatures our Notaries can assist you in the following areas:

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