London Notary Public practice MD Pryke Notary Public, based in London’s West End, would like to provide an update to its notary clients regarding the legalisation service offered by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. The Legalisation Department, which issues Apostilles on behalf of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, has confirmed to this London Notaries practice that all mail received from Notary Publics up to 9th October has now been opened. Consequently the Legalisation Department of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office has indicated that applications for legalisation received after this date will be open “as soon as possible“. Many London notaries, including London Notary Matthew Pryke, fear that the industrial action planned by the Royal Mail is likely to delay the postal application legalisation service offered by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. Consequently London Notary Public Matthew Pryke would like to advise all notary clients to consider using alternative ways in which to achieve legalisation of documents.
Commenting on the impending industrial action London Notary Public Matthew Pryke explained, “Notary clients are understandably concerned as to the potential impact that the Royal Mail industrial action may have on their deadlines to obtain Apostilles from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. As a cautionary measure I am advising all of my notary clients to consider using alternative means in which to get documents legalised by utilising London Notary Public legalisation services such as the premium service, DX or using London notary practice couriers to legalise documents via the Foreign and Commonwealth offices “Public Counter”“.
