Registered UK Apostille Service
Working with the FCO to Provide UK Legalisation Services
Situations may arise in which you need someone to act on your behalf in a legal capacity. This can often necessitate the use of a power of attorney. When issuing a power of attorney to an overseas agent you may be asked to get an apostille to ensure the document is legally recognised in the country it is being presented.
Before sending this document to us, please ensure this is signed in the presence of a UK solicitor or Notary Public. The solicitor or notary should witness your signature, add a statement confirming why they are certifying this and also date the certification.

Documents of this nature are often used when dealing with the purchase or sale of an overseas property, managing the estate of an ex patriate, acting on behalf of a company internationally and for many other general purposes.
