Seeing a Notary

If you have the need to see a notary, The Society provides these hints:

The Society's Recommended Fee Scale is set out on the site. Often, a multitude of small tasks may be required to be done by the notary and therefore you can expect to be charged based on his professional time engaged.

Until the notary is able to view the documentation involved, it may be difficult for the notary to assess the time of the notary's attendance. Generally, for a straight forward document you could expect the notary to see you for about 15 minutes and then conclude the notary's involvement within a further 10 minutes.

If the documentation is not so straight forward, it will take longer.

Notaries are sometimes available to travel out of their office or attend out of hours. You would need to make arrangements for these attendances and expect to pay additional fees.
