Notarial Services

The execution of notarial documents is reserved for notaries public who are attorneys that are specifically qualified to authenticate documents, draft and execute specialist legal documents and perform wide-ranging administrative functions.

We offer a full range of notarial services as both Partners of our firm are qualified notaries public who assist commercial entities and individuals with their notarial requirements.

ANTENUPTIAL CONTRACTS (“ANC”)

If you are domiciled in South Africa, your matrimonial regime will be either in community of property or out of community of property. If you do not conclude an ANC prior to your marriage, your marriage will automatically be one in community of property. If you conclude an ANC prior to your marriage you will be married out of community of property. In your ANC you can choose whether the principle of accrual will apply to your marriage or not.

If you would like to be married out of community of property (with or without accrual), then it is essential that you conclude your ANC prior to the commencement of your marriage. If you have any questions regarding the above or would like to engage our services with regard to your ANC, please contact us and we will be happy to assist you.

AUTHENTICATION OF DOCUMENTS

When certain documents are signed in the Republic of South Africa, but are to be used in another country, often they are required to be authenticated. As notaries we are able to provide this service. Whether you require authentication of documents signed in the Republic of South Africa or notarial certification of documents please contact us for assistance.
