Notary

Hugh McGroddy Notary provides clients with a professional Notary and public Notary service.


A Notary is a public officer who serves the public in non-contentious matters usually concerned with deeds, estates, powers-of-attorney, and foreign and international business. A Notary service is normally required when a client has documents that are going to be scrutinised abroad. 

A Notary is empowered by law and by custom and usage of notaries through the ages to:

 Attest Signatures                

 Authenticate Documents

 Administer Oaths                 

 Take Affirmations and Declarations

 Taking Affidavits (other than for the courts in Ireland)

 Draw up Powers of Attorney and other legal documents


Our Notary signature and seal verifies to authorities in another country that all the necessary checks and have been carried out to authenticate the document.
If required, our Notary service can advise in relation to legalisation or the application of an Apostille. 


Notary documents are required in relation to the purchase of Property abroad.

Notary Services are used for Certificating Educational Diploma.

Notary Legislation

Along with sealing by the Notary public, many documents are required to be legalised.
This complex procedure requires the state authority of a country to satisfy the state authority of another country that the Notary signature of the Notary public is genuine.
In most cases, the addition to the document of an Apostille sealed by the department of foreign affairs is sufficient to satisfy the receiving county.
However, in extreme cases, the document would need to be handed over to the supreme court to be verified.
