Notary Public

Notary Public

A Notary Public is a public officer constituted by law to serve the public in non-contentious matters usually concerned with estates, deeds, powers-of-attorney, and foreign and international business. Notaries are public officers and they can act as a legal advisor in many areas like real-estate law, and business law. A Notary Public also deals with estate planning or making a will.

As we said, Notaries are public officers. As a public officer, a Notary can also Certify and draft documents which are considered “authentic”. If the original of a document is held by a Notary, the chances of it being lost go down considerably.

Notaries can also act as a mediator, which means that a Notary can also act as a neutral third party between two or more parties to resolve their dispute and reach a voluntary settlement.

Responsibilities of a Notary Public towards clients:

A Notary should build a trustworthy relationship with clients. A notary should be honest, frank and objective. A Notary should respect professional secrecy, and must provide the best service and information to their client. Before providing any services to the client a Notary should explain all the ins and outs of the job or service they are getting done (in case they are not able to understand it).

To make my clients happy and to provide the best service I always ensure that my client understand what they are signing, or getting into. For example, if a client wants to buy a house and they do not have the proper information, then it is my responsibility to first provide all the information to the client so that they feel comfortable and they feel free to make decisions without any doubts.
If you need any type of notarial service please call me @ 604-503-3853. I will make sure that you have all the information to make the best decision and it will be my responsibility to take care of your needs and to provide the best service to you.

Travelling Tips

It’s a New Year and it is likely that you will be travelling this year! We have put together some tips to ensure that you travel safely and without worry!
1) It is important that you have a Will! If you already have a will you should definitely review it and see if it needs to be updated. You can also have our Notary review it.
2) It is important to create a power of attorney. If you have important things to deal with at home and you are abroad, appoint someone that you completely trust and they can handle the business for you.
3) If you are travelling with children, it is recommended that they carry a travel letter. If your kids are travelling with relatives, they must be ready to present proper documentation, such as passports, birth certificates, and travel consent from both parents.
4) We highly recommend that you travel with all your important documents photocopied and notarized. It is much safer to travel with photocopies of your passport, visas travel insurance, and driving license. We recommend that you don’t carry your passport around and keep it in a safe place at your destination.

Our office can help prepare all of the required documents so you can sit back and enjoy your trip without all the hassle. To book an appointment please call our office at 604-503-3853. We look forward to serving you and making your trip more enjoyable.
