Notary Public Edinburgh

A Notary Public can administer oaths and statutory declarations, and witness or authenticate official documents. A Notary holds an office and status which is recognised internationally.

Our Edinburgh Notary, Oliver Tidman, is registered with the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO). He is able to prepare, attest, authenticate and certify (for use anywhere in the world) deeds and other documents under his signature and official seal. Your documents will then be acceptable as proof of the matters attested or confirmed by the Notary, to the public or judicial authorities in the country where they are to be used.

For some documents to be effective outside the United Kingdom, they must be ‘legalised’. Legislation is the official confirmation that the signature, seal and stamp of the Notary is that of a genuine, practising UK Notary Public. We would encourage clients to always allow sufficient time to legalise documents in case of delays or problems at the FCDO.

How can we help you with
Notarisation & Certification?

Typical notary services include:

  • Notarisation and authentication of documents, such as Affidavits, Powers of Attorney and Statutory Declarations
  • Certifying the genuineness of copy documents, such as passports, driving licences, birth and marriage certificates, utility bills for money laundering compliance of other organisations and sponsorship letters
  • Attesting the signature of documents
  • Certifying copy university or college diplomas if you do not wish to send the original
  • Arranging to have documents legalised with an ‘Apostille’ by the FCDO and, if necessary, sent on to be processed at the relevant foreign Consulate or Embassy.
