Whether you are purchasing a property, executing a Will or simply applying for a new job, it can seem as though the legal formalities are endless. Nobody wants to be held up waiting for a countersignature or any other form of verification, especially if matters are time-sensitive.
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.
