Service Information

Engaging the services of a Notary Public begins by making an appointment to see them. At the appointment, the Notary Public will consider the documents involved and, if appropriate, administer their completion and signing. The normal practice is for the notary to apply their signature, stamp, or seal as appropriate and, once this has taken place, hand to the client the final document along with a copy at the end of the appointment. A scanned copy can also be provided via email if required.

If there is a need to forward the document to the Legalisation Office for the Apostille, this is sent shortly after the appointment.  The process of applying the Apostille normally takes up to five working days, plus courier or postage time.

Please contact us if you have any questions about our notarial services or require further information.

Complaint Information

If a client is dissatisfied about the service you have received, please do not hesitate to contact the Notary Public concerned to see if the matter can be resolved.

If that does not resolve the matter and you are unhappy about any aspect of the service you receive or about the bill, please contact our Managing Director, Ms Alison Lee on 02392 660261 or by post to 62-68 Kingston Crescent, Portsmouth, Hampshire PO2 8AQ.

We have a written procedure that sets out how we handle complaints. We will send you a letter acknowledging your complaint within three days of receiving your letter.  We have eight weeks to consider your complaint. If we have not resolved it within this time you may complain to the Legal Ombudsman, as referred to below.

If we are unable to resolve the matter you may then complain to the Notaries Society of which our Notaries are a member, who have a Complaints Procedure which is approved by the Faculty Office.  This procedure is free to use and is designed to provide a quick resolution to any dispute. 

In that case please write (but do not enclose any original documents) with full details of your complaint to: - 

The Secretary of The Notaries Society

PO Box 1023

Ipswich   IP1 9XB


If you have any difficulty in making a complaint in writing, please do not hesitate to call the Notaries Society or the Faculty Office for assistance. 

Finally, even if you have your complaint considered under the Notaries Society Approved Complaints Procedure, you may at the end of that procedure, or after a period of eight weeks from the date you first notified us that you were dissatisfied, make your complaint to the Legal Ombudsman, if you are not happy with the result:  

Legal Ombudsman

P O Box 6806

Wolverhampton   WV1 9WJ 

Tel: 0300 555 0333         



If you decide to make a complaint to the Legal Ombudsman, you must refer your matter to the Legal Ombudsman within one year from the act or omission or within one year from when you should reasonably have known there was a cause for complaint.
