Covid-19 Restrictions

Despite the loosening of legal restrictions designed to combat Covid-19 by the UK Government and Parliament in England and the Welsh Government and Senedd in Wales, the Faculty Office confirms that its guidance on “remote notarisation” will remain in force until further notice. The continuing possibility of the need for notaries and their clients to self-isolate because of contracting the virus or being in close contact with such a person, and the high prevalence of the virus still, gives rise to a continuing need for the guidance.
