• Notarial services

Ideally, everyone would like original documents to be presented during transactions just to be safe but sadly, this is not possible as there can be only one original ( which obviously you would want to keep). Hence the reason why the system of notorial services was introduced to the world. This is a standard practice recognized worldwide to ensure that documents and transactions are certified and authentic. We want to help your transactions go as smoothly as possible (whether they are local or international ), that is why our services include:
 

           -  Notarizing of documents for use abroad;
          -  Preparation of documents;
          -  Certification of copies of documents;
          -  Affidavits;
          -  Oaths and statutory declarations;
          -  Deed polls;
          -  Documents in connection to marriages abroad;
