What is a Notarisation?

In business dealings we cannot always trust the people with whom we conduct business. As assurance that the dealings and documents pertaining to delicate business matters, a notary lawyer is appointed to notarise the documents. Notarisation is a process which serves to assure all parties involved in a transaction that the documents are authentic and can be trusted. Indication that a document has been notarised is one which bares the seal of a notary lawyer.

Simply put, notarisation is a process which serves to assure all parties who share in a transaction that a document is authentic. This could mean assuring a judge in the court of law that a document can be trusted. Notarisation is performed by a notary lawyer and outweighs documents which have been certified by a Commissioner of Oaths. As such, a notary lawyer, or notary lawyer South Africa, serves to administer in the authentication or documents which will hold up in court, and other scenarios, as true and to be trusted. A notary lawyer is recognised as an impartial witness, whose notarised documents can be trusted without a doubt. It should be noted that when dealing with international affairs, power of attorney, and certain documents related to immovable property, documents should be notarised by a notary lawyer, as a notary lawyer is held at a higher standard than a Commissioner of Oaths.
