Martin Astle, Solicitor and Notary at Astle Paterson discusses how a Notary can assist you or your business.
Martin said, “A Notary is a member of the oldest branch of the legal professional in England and Wales – having been appointed by the Archbishop of Canterbury and being subject to regulation by the Master of the Faculties.
Notaries are few and far between. There are at present approximately 850 practising Notaries in England and Wales.
However, at Astle Paterson we are fortunate to have two Notaries, Jean Paterson and me (Martin Astle.)
Notaries, for example, help businesses secure contracts and patents aboard and help individuals get married or move abroad. This is due to the fact that a Notary (unlike a Solicitor or Barrister) is able to authenticate or certify for use abroad documents, transactions or signatures – and prove the documents you wish to produce for use in another country are what they say they are.
Notaries can therefore assist you in 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, authenticating personal documents and information for immigration, emigration, marriage aboard or to work aboard and authenticating company and business documents and transactions.”
