For a Potential or Existing Client of a Notary

The Faculty Office is the regulator of the profession of Notaries Public in England & Wales.

As a potential or existing client of a Notary, you may have questions about how to use the legal services offered by a Notary in England & Wales. We suggest you start by reading through our ‘Frequently Asked Questions’:


At the Faculty Office, we are not ourselves Notaries, but you can find Notaries using our search.


Members of the Notarial profession may join the relevant society; either The Notaries Society (for most Notaries) or The Society of Scrivener Notaries (for Scrivener Notaries). These societies are membership organisations which represent the profession to external bodies in this country and beyond. They also have functions in informal complaint resolution and responding to consultations from the Faculty Office about new Rules and other regulatory matters.
