What is a Notary Public?
In Scotland, all notaries are also qualified solicitors. A notary public has a practising certificate, issued by the Law Society of Scotland, which authorises them to certify a wide variety of documents.
Do I need a Notary?
Notaries play an integral role in Scottish law. There are a variety of instances where you might require a notary, such as:
- You have to swear an oath, submit an affidavit or affirmation, or sign a statutory declaration
- You need authentication of a foreign Will or documents pertaining to the administration of an estate of a person overseas, or someone who owns property abroad
- You are unable to read or sign documents yourself and require a notary to sign on your behalf (known as notarial execution)
- You need authentication for personal documents related to immigration or emigration, or an application to work or wed overseas
- You need documents that are legally valid in a foreign jurisdiction (for example, relating to an overseas property purchase)
- You are applying for permission for children to travel abroad
- You have original documents that you need certified as authentic
The examples above are just some of the diverse functions a notary may carry out.
