Our Fees and Charges
Our fees for notarisation services are normally provided on a per document basis with additional fees for supplementary services such as arranging legalisation or travelling to locations away from our offices to meet with clients. We are able to offer discounted rates for matters involving the notarisation of multiple documents or where clients have regular requirements for notarial services.
Whilst we usually charge on a per document basis, in some circumstances, such as where we are drafting documents or the documents require substantial amendment, this may not be suitable and in such case we shall charge by reference to the time engaged on the matter and our notary’s hourly rate at the time. We charge a minimum fee of £100 plus VAT per document we notarise.
For new clients who instruct us we shall provide a quote on the above basis prior to carrying out an instruction, detailing our fees and any known disbursements associated with the work requested. With clients that instruct us regularly we may communicate the applicable fees through an agreed fee rate, sent in advance to the client, that applies to any of their requests. Even where agreed rates are in place however, we are still happy to respond to any request for details of the fees and costs applicable to any new instruction.
Where applicable, the fees charged by embassies and consulates for their legalization or for translation services shall be passed on to our clients as disbursements. Any such fees or charges shall be advised to our clients.
We will add VAT to our fees, where applicable, at the appropriate rate from time to time.
As a starting point we suggest that you contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone on +44 (0)118 951 6767 and send us a copy of the document(s) to be notarised. We will then provide a prompt fee estimate for you inclusive of the cost of any legalisation, translation and postage if applicable.
