Notarial & Legalisation Services in Reading & Henley-on-Thames

Friar Street Notaries operates from the offices of Blandy & Blandy LLP, a leading firm of solicitors in Reading and the Thames Valley. Our two qualified notaries (who are also partners and lawyers within the firm) act for a wide range of private individuals, alongside providing notarial services for businesses.

Documents to be used overseas will often need to be authenticated by a Notary to be accepted by foreign public and legal authorities.

With unrivalled coverage and a full range of services, we offer a cost-effective, accessible and flexible service – and can assist with urgent matters at very short notice.

Our notarial services include:

  • Witnessing signatures of deeds and documents for use outside the UK
  • Authenticating documents and facts
  • Certifying copies of public and private documents
  • Taking affidavits, declarations and depositions for use outside the UK
  • Powers of Attorney
  • Documents in connection with foreign adoption and surrogacy
  • Documents relating to foreign property
  • Marriages abroad
  • Verifying translations
  • Documents in connection with evidence of identity.

Please see our frequently asked questions page before making an appointment and further information on our services

We can also handle legalisation requirements, whether at the Foreign & Commonwealth Office or any other relevant embassy/consulate. These can be dealt with quickly using our London agent’s expedited service in cases of urgency.
