How much does Notarisation cost?
The fee will be based upon how much time it is necessary to spend on your matter.
Where only one visit to the Notary is required, it is expected that you will pay the Notary’s fee at the time of your visit. Please contact me for an estimate of the cost.
My Notarial Practice is not registered for VAT and so no VAT is payable on top of our fees.
All our Notaries are authorised and regulated by the Faculty Office of the Archbishop of Canterbury of 1 The Sanctuary, Westminster, London, SW1P 3JT and are members of the Notaries Society (of England and Wales).
