Whilst we can do our best to keep our own systems secure, we do not have full control over all processes involved in, for example, your use of our website or sending confidential materials to us via email, and we cannot therefore guarantee the security of your information transmitted to us on the web.

 

Data subject rights

  1. Data subjects have numerous rights in relation to their personal data. For further information about your data protection rights please visit the ICO website.

  • Right to make a subject access request (SAR). Data subjects may request in writing copies of their personal data. However, compliance with such requests is subject to certain limitations and exemptions and the rights of other data subjects. Each request should make clear that a SAR is being made. You may also be required to submit a proof of your identity and payment, where applicable.

  • Right to rectification. Data subjects may request that we rectify any inaccurate or incomplete personal data.

  • Right to withdraw consent. Data subjects may at any time withdraw their consent to the processing of their personal data carried out by the Business on the basis of previous consent. Such withdrawal will not affect the lawfulness of processing based on previous consent.

  • Right to object to processing, including automated processing and profiling. The Business does not make automated decisions. The Business may use third party due diligence platforms which provide recommendations about data subjects by automated means. We will comply with any data subject’s objection to processing unless we have a compelling overriding legitimate ground for the processing, the processing is for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or we have another lawful reason to refuse such request. We will comply with each valid opt-out request in relation to marketing communications.

  • Right to erasure. Data subjects may request that we erase their personal data. We will comply, unless there is a lawful reason for not doing so. For example, there may be an overriding legitimate ground for keeping the personal data, such as, our archiving obligations that we have to comply with.

  • Data subjects may request that we restrict our processing of their personal data in various circumstances. We will comply, unless there is a lawful reason for not doing so, such as, a legal obligation to continue processing your personal data in a certain way.

  • Right to data portability. In certain circumstances, data subjects may request the controller to provide a copy of their personal data in a structured, commonly used and machine readable format and have it transferred to another provider of the same or similar services. To the extent such right applies to the Services, we will comply with such transfer request. Please note that a transfer to another provider does not imply erasure of the data subject’s personal data which may still be required for legitimate and lawful purposes.

  • Right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority. We suggest that data subjects contact us about any questions or complaints in relation to how we process personal data. However, each data subject has the right to contact the relevant supervisory authority directly.

 

Money Laundering regulation

 

We are obliged under the Money Laundering Regulations to take measures to protect against fraud and forgery. To ensure that we comply with this you acknowledge and agree that:

 

  • We may make all such enquiries as we deem necessary or appropriate in order to comply with our duties, and

  • You will provide us with such documents and information as we may request.

 

Your failure to do so will entitle us to terminate our retainer and cease acting for you forthwith.

 

If, in the course of acting for you, we discover or suspect, or have reasonable grounds for knowing or suspecting that any person is engaged in money laundering we may, and in some cases will be required to, disclose this information to the to the National Crime Agency. Depending upon the particular circumstances of the case, we may not be able to tell you that such a disclosure has been made or the reasons for it.

 

Proof of identity / corporate authority

 

We will need you to produce by way of formal identification the original of:

  • Your current passport; and

  • Proof of address such as utility bills bank statements or credit card statement that should not be more than 3 months old, council tax bill or UK photo driving licence;

 

In some circumstances, we may require you to produce two forms of identification with a photograph of you, such as a driving licence or passport.

 

You must also bring any other means of identification that may be referred to in the papers sent to you as being required such as a foreign identity card. We may also ask to see further evidence of identity such as marriage certificates etc. and we will be happy to advise exactly what will be required in any particular case.

 

If you act on behalf of a company or organisation, we will need to establish that it exists and that the signatory has authority to represent it. We generally conduct our own checks on United Kingdom based entities. In some cases (particularly for companies or organisations established overseas) we may ask you to produce a certificate of incorporation, good standing certificate or other similar evidence.

 

If certification of the signatory’s authority to represent a company or organisation is required, we will need to review additional documentation, for example:

 

  • constitutional documents (e.g. the Articles)

  • a power of attorney

  • board resolutions

  • authorised signatory book (in the case of banks)

  • extract from a commercial register (generally for foreign companies)

 

Information for notarial work

 

1. Why a notary? 

 

It is almost always the case that you have been asked to see a notary because you have a document that needs to be used abroad. Seeing a notary is never a mere rubber-stamping exercise.  The international duty of a Notary involves a high standard of care.  This is not only towards the client but also to anyone who may rely on the document and to Governments or officials of other countries.  These people are entitled to assume that a Notary will ensure full compliance with the relevant requirements both here and abroad; and to rely on the Notary’s register and records. Great care is essential at every stage to minimise the risks of errors, omissions, alterations, fraud, forgery, money laundering, the use of false identity, and so on.

We offer appointments during business hours and occasionally outside of business hours in exceptional circumstances. We are also prepared to make home visits or visit corporate clients at their place of business. If the notarial appointments take place outside of our office we will make an additional charge to cover travelling time and expenses. 

 

2. Signatures: 

 

The Notary should normally witness your signature.  Please do not sign the document in advance of your appointment with me.

 

3. Papers to be sent to me in advance:  

It will save time, expense and mistakes if you can let me have the following originals or photocopies as long as possible before the appointment:

  • The documents to be notarised;

  • Any letter or other form of instruction which you have received about what has to be done with the documents;

  • Your evidence of identification.

 

4. Identification:  

The day of the signature meeting, we will need you to produce by way of formal identification the original of (in preferred order):

  • Your current passport; and

  • A utility bill, which should not be more than 3 months old or council tax bill;

In some circumstances, we may require you to produce two forms of identification with a photograph of you, such as a driving licence or passport.

You must also bring any other means of identification that may be referred to in the papers sent to you as being required such as a foreign identity card. We may also ask to see further evidence of identity such as marriage certificates etc. and will advise you of this if necessary.

5. Proof of names:  

In a case where the name on the document is different from the name you are currently using, or there has been a variation in the form of spelling of the name over the years, please provide me with as appropriate Certificates of Birth, Marriage, Divorce Decree or Change of Name Deed showing all the different names that you use.  If there has been a change of name, then we will need to see a copy of the Deed Poll or Statutory Declaration, which dealt with it.

 

6. Advice on the document:  

If you bring a document to me for notarisation as a Notary, we will advise you as to the formalities required for completing it. However, we will not be attempting to advise you about the transaction itself.

 

7. Written Translations:  

It is essential that you understand what you are signing.  

  • If the document is in a foreign language, which you do not understand sufficiently, we may have to insist that a translation be obtained.  If we arrange for a translation, a further fee will be payable and we will provide you with details of this.

 

  • If you arrange for a professional translation, the translator should add his/her name, address, relevant qualification, and a certificate stating: “Document X is a true and complete translation of document Y, to which this translation is attached.”

 

8. Oral Interpreter:  

If you and we cannot understand each other because of a language difficulty, we may have to make arrangements for a competent interpreter to be available at our interview and this may involve a further fee.

 

9. Companies:  

If a document is to be signed by you on behalf of a company there are further requirements on which we may have to insist.  

In each case:  

  • Evidence of identity of the authorised signatory (as listed above).

  • A Letter of Authority, Minute, Resolution or Power of Attorney, authorising you to sign the document.

Additionally, companies: Certificate of Incorporation and of any Change of Name, a copy of the Memorandum and Articles of Association, details of directors and secretaries.  In all instances, we will be carrying out various company searches, which may have an effect on the level of fees charged.

 

10. Notarial charges and expenses:  

Details of our charges are set out in these terms of business.  

Charges: If the matter is simple, we will charge a fixed fee provided to you in advanced with a breakdown of disbursements such as legalisation fees, postage, courier fees, travelling expenses, translating costs, and so on. 

For more complicated or time-consuming matters, the fee will be based on our hourly rate of £295 [no VAT]. The time charged includes: the initial instruction, providing you with advice, drafting documents, attending meetings, phone calls, e-mails, legalisation, entering/ maintaining information in the Notarial Register and Protocol.

 

We are currently not registered for VAT, we will notify you if the situation changes.

 

 

11. Typical Stages of a notarial transaction: 

Each notarial matter is different and the requirements will vary according to whether the client is a private individual or a company. Some of the typical key stages are likely to include:

  • Receiving and reviewing the documents to be notarised together with any instructions you may have received.

  • Liaising with your legal advisors or other bodies to obtain the necessary documentation to deal with the document (e.g. information from Companies House or foreign registries, powers of attorney etc.)

  • Checking the identity, capacity and authority of the person who is to sign the document.

  • If a document is to be certified, checking with the issuing authorities that the document is genuine. 

  • Meeting with the signatory to verify their identity and to ascertain that they understand what they are signing and that they are doing so of their own free will and ensuring that the document is executed correctly.

  • Drafting and affixing or endorsing a notarial certificate to the document. 

  • Arranging for the legalisation of the document as appropriate.

  • Arranging for the storage of copies of all notarised documents in accordance with the requirements of the Notarial Practice Rules 2019.

12. Notarial Records and Data Protection:  

When we carry out our work for you, we are required to make an entry in a formal register, which is kept by us as a permanent record.  We will retain a copy of the notarised documentation or in some circumstances the original, with that record. Our practice is registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office. Personal data received from clients is held securely and not capable of being accessed externally. Data collected as part of notarial records is used solely for the purposes of meeting our professional legal responsibilities as Notaries Public. For full details of our privacy notice please see our website: www.lopez-moreno.com

 

Record keeping and storage of documents

 

We have a legitimate interest in retaining copies of your identification documents, your file and a copy of the notarial act produced. This will assist us in providing you with a proper service or in dealing with a complaint. It is also a requirement under the Notarial Practice Rules 2019.

 

Termination of retainer

 

Your right to cancel: You may terminate your instruction in writing at any time, and we shall invoice you for the work done up to that time at the hourly rate stated. We shall not release your file to you or any third party until any final bill has been paid in full and you have completed all necessary documents in order to release us from any obligations to you, the court or a third party.

 

Upon the termination of your Instruction for any reason you will promptly pay in full all outstanding fees and expenses as incurred up to and including the date of termination together with all fees and expenses as incurred through any continuing obligation to you, the court or any third party.

 

Termination by us: We reserve the right to terminate our engagement by you if we have good reasons to do so, for example if you do not pay a bill or comply with our request for a payment on account or if you fail to give us the cooperation which we are reasonably entitled to expect.

 

Right to cancel in the event of off-premises retainers

 

If you have agreed to an off-premises retainer, you have a right to cancel this Agreement for a period of fourteen (14) days commencing on the date on which this Agreement is concluded or the date on which you receive this Agreement (whichever is later) (the “Cancellation Period”). Should you wish to cancel this Agreement within the Cancellation Period, you should send notice in writing or electronically to the addresses found in contact us section of our website. If you want us to do work urgently, you can ask us in writing to start working immediately. This request means you must pay for services incurred such as instructions and correspondence even if the contract is later cancelled. The payment amount will be calculated for the services provided before cancellation on the basis of the total agreed price. You will lose your right to cancel the service contract if the service has been fully performed at your request and you have acknowledged that you would lose your right to cancel once the contract had been completed.

 

Ceasing acting for you

 

Under the UK’s sanctions regime we are required to carry out checks and risk assessments when undertaking work.

If at any time you or any other party directly or indirectly involved in your instruction become a designated person under the UK sanctions regime or we are not satisfied with the information or evidence provided regarding the relevant details of the parties, purpose of the work or source of funds, we retain our right to cease acting for you terminating our retainer, we will inform you accordingly if we do so, even if we carried out some or most of the work or if the transaction is time sensitive.

You agree that a long as we have a ‘good reason’ to terminate our retainer (Buxton v Mills-Owens [2010] EWCA Civ 122) you will not be entitled to make any claims against us or receive any compensation from us as a result of any damages you may suffer due to us terminating our retainer.

 

Liability

 

Our notarial practice maintains professional indemnity insurance at a level of £1,000,000.00 per claim. It is a condition of our acting for you as Notary Publics that the limit of our total liability in the event of a claim made against us shall be £1,000,000.00.
