We have two partners who are notaries at Hatten Wyatt, however their practice as notaries is separate and distinct from Hatten Wyatt Solicitors & Advocates and they practice under the partnership Hatten Wyatt Notaries.

Notaries are primarily concerned with the verification of documents and information that will be used in other countries in the world, for clients who have business or property overseas, or who are involved in litigation in foreign courts.

Other services which may be useful are that notaries are able to authenticate powers of attorney for use abroad, authenticate the signing of documents in their presence and deal with the administration of oaths.

The geographical location of Hatten Wyatt Notaries in Gravesend Kent, home of the Port of London Authority means that we are well placed for shipping protests.

Additional services available by notaries include:

  • Authenticating documents and facts, business documents and transactions
  • Bills of exchange
  • Certification
  • Commercial and copyright documents for worldwide use
  • Documents in connection with adoption
  • Documents in connection with evidence of name or corporate status
  • Documents relating to foreign property
  • Legalisation at the Foreign & Commonwealth Office or any other relevant embassy/consulate where necessary
  • Marriages abroad etc.
  • Powers of Attorney
  • Shipping protests
  • Sponsorship visits or settlements
  • Taking affidavits, declarations and depositions for use outside the United Kingdom
  • Verifying translations
  • Witnessing signature of deeds and documents primarily for use outside the UK
