The notary holds an unique public office of trust and fidelity, which is given recognition throughout the world. Every notary is a senior lawyer of high integrity and long experience, with extensive legal skill and knowledge. Every notarial act calls for the exercise of those qualities. Notarial fees reflect those qualities, as well as the gravity of the notarial act.
Notarial fees are not regulated in South Australia. Notaries in this State therefore fix their own fees.
My fees will generally be charged in accordance with my scale of notarial fees. However, I reserve the right to charge on a different basis, according to the nature, difficulty or complexity of the matter.
It is not always possible to provide a prior estimate of my fees, but, if provided, any such estimate is not a binding quotation and is subject always to my assessment of the documents and the work required, once I have all relevant information. The final cost will be determined by the work actually done.
Payment must be made (and any non-cash payment cleared in my bank account) before documents will be released. The preferred method of payment is cash, which will permit immediate release of documents. I do not offer a credit card facility. All fees are formally invoiced.
