- Administer oaths;
- Attest signatures;
- Authenticate documents;
- Give notarial acts;
- Take affidavits other than for the Courts in Ireland;
- Take affirmations and declarations generally;
- Receive and make protests under Mercantile Law and the issue of notarial certificates in respect of documents and persons; and
- Draw up Powers of Attorney and other legal documents customarily prepared by a Notary Public.
What documents does our Notary Public require to prove identity?
It is essential that the person requiring documents to be notarized brings to the Notary Public as proof of identity and address, their passport or drivers licence and a utility bill (dated within last 3 months).
