A Notary Public may authenticate a document for use in another country. The Notary can also help with getting a document legalised.
For example, if you’re buying a property in Spain, you may need to obtain a power of attorney so your Spanish lawyer can complete the transaction on your behalf.
A power of attorney for use overseas, must be notarised in the presence of a Notary, who can witness your signature and ensure that the requisite formalities are followed, allowing the legal process to proceed smoothly.
The need for a Notary to be involved will be determined by the laws of the location in which the document is intended to be used.
