It has come to our attention at MD Pryke Notary Public that many people search the internet for terms such as ‘Free Notary service’.
Whilst we completely understand that people should compare prices and services when making a decision as to which Notary Public service in London to appoint, we do recommend that you bear a few details in mind.
Firstly, free Notary services simply don’t exist. The Notary rules as laid out by the Notary governing body at the Faculty Office state that a notary public is required to charge a reasonable fee according to the level of service that the Notary offers. For this reason alone, a Notary Public offering free Notary services would be directly contravening the professional Notary conduct rules.
So the second most salient question to ask must surely be, ‘If there isn’t such a thing as free Notary services, then what’s the next best thing?’
Forgive us for banging our drum again about the necessity to shop around before instructing a Notary service, but at M D Pryke Notary Public we feel very strongly that not all notarial services are created equal.
If they were, then why are some firms inundated with clients clamouring to instruct them, whilst the reception areas of other notary services in London resemble the Mary Celeste?
The answer, of course, is the quality of notarial service provided.
For example, a Notary is required to ensure that their client fully comprehends the document that they have requested be notarized. This may well be a straight forward procedure if the client wished to have, say, a copy of their own passport notarized. But what happens when they bring a document that is written in a foreign language relating to an obscure piece of legislation pertaining to a property deal in a non EU state?
An experienced, fully qualified Notary will always take the time to ensure that their client’s best interests are serviced.
