Fishers is very competitive with regards to fees. The Notaries Society has given guidance on fees to ensure that notarial work is carried out to a proper standard. Fishers charges at the lower end of the scale of fees in accordance with guidance given by The Notaries Society.
The minimum fee is £60+VAT. For more complex transactions, Fishers charges a rate of £300+VAT per hour.
Often notarial documents need to be legalised, usually by being sent to The Foreign & Commonwealth Office, but sometimes also to various embassies in London as well. Fishers can arrange this for a client as there are specialist couriers who undertake this work.
The Foreign & Commonwealth Office and various embassies charge a small fee for legalising a document. Such institutions will often only accept notaries’ cheques, not cheques issued by individuals. Fishers will issue a notary cheque to cover this fee on behalf of clients.
With regards to courier charges, Fishers merely pass on to the client what it is being charged by the courier company.
If a client instructs Fishers either to post or to courier documents, they do so entirely at their own risk and Fishers will not be responsible for the documents in any way after they have left its offices
