What about fees?
There are rules about the information which a notary must provide. This is so that you can make an informed choice.
On the website
A notary’s website should set out:
- The basis on which fees are calculated
- Details of the services the notary provides and the normal timescales
- Levels of insurance
- Information how to make a complaint
- Confirmation that the notary is “regulated through the Faculty Office of the Archbishop of Canterbury” – follow this link to find out what this means.
If there is no website you can ask for this information. This will enable you to compare. However, this can only be a guide because what you think you need a notary to do to may be less than what is actually required.
