What is a notary lawyer?

A notary lawyer is a public functionary admitted and authorised by the High Court of South Africa to draw and attest contracts and other documents, and to authenticate certain documents and public acts. Certain documents must by law be drawn and attested by notary lawyer.

It should be noted that a notary lawyer, or notary lawyer South Africa, is not a Commissioner of Oaths. While a Commissioner of Oaths can also certify documents, they don’t carry the same value as those documents which have been certified/notarised by a notary lawyer. Such is the case when dealing with documentations pertaining to international, or national, use. A notary lawyer is held in a higher regard than a Commissioner of Oaths, and the office of a notary lawyer id highly respected place of trust. As such, any documentations drawn up and attested by a notary lawyer can be trusted and received with the highest confidence. A notary lawyer is a specialist in his field and is regarded in a higher capacity that an ordinary lawyer. A notary lawyer has an expanded list of duties and responsibilities. Some of which, where notarisation, authentication, and legalisation is concerned, need to be held in the notary lawyer’s safekeeping, and the notary lawyer is also required to keep a protocol and register of the documents drafted by and attested to before him.
