Looking for a Limerick Notary? At Hogan Dowling McNamara Solicitors, Limerick our Notary Public, Thomas Dowling, is available for all the usual notarial services. Thomas was appointed as both a Notary Public and a Commissioner for Oaths by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court in June 2014 and is appointed for life.
A Notary essentially is authorised to attest and certify deeds including conveyances, powers of attorney and other documents and to swear Affidavits and certify other documents for use abroad. A notary can:
- Administer Oaths
- Attest Signatures
- Authenticate Documents
- Give Notarial Acts
- Swear Affidavits
- Take Affirmations and Declarations
- Receive and Make Protests under Mercantile Law
- Issue notarial certificates
- Notarise Powers of Attorney and other legal documents
The practical realities of life as a Notary involve witnessing signatures, swearing affidavits for use abroad and certifying documents. The Notary also certify that certain matters have been done in relation to company law and commercial transactions.
You will have to attend in person with the document and bring with you a valid form of photo ID (usually passport or driver’s license) and a utility bill or other proof of address not less than 3 months old. If documents are being certified as true copies of originals, you will need to bring the original with you also.
If you need to get a document apostilled or authenticated, then after the notarial certificate has been applied to the document, it must be brought to the Department of Foreign Affairs for the apostille to be added. You can find helpful instructions on the Department of Foreign Affairs website at https://www.dfa.ie/travel/our-services/authenticating-documents/.
The cost of a notarial service varies and depends on the complexity of the matter and the time taken. If you want a quote or make an appointment, simply email us the document at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 061 501100.
