Power of Attorney
A Power of Attorney is one of the most frequently notarised documents. It is used to appoint another person to act for you in a legal matter outside the UK. Your "Attorney" does not need to be a lawyer; it could be a friend or family member.

Lasting Power of Attorney
A Lasting Power of Attorney lets you appoint someone to make decisions on your behalf. It’s normally used when someone is unable to make their own decisions.
There are 2 types:
health and welfare, property and financial affairs. You can choose to make one type of Lasting Power of Attorney or both.

Statutory Declaration
A statutory declaration is a declaration made before a notary public or another person authorised to administer an oath (commissioner of oaths) and allow a person to affirm something to be true for the purposes of satisfying some legal requirement. If either you or your partner (or both) are single, the statutory declaration may be called single status statutory declaration or single status affidavit.

An affidavit is a statement made under oath that some fact, or set of facts, is true to the best of the knowledge of the person signing the affidavit, or the affiant. Affidavits are commonly used to transfer property and provide sworn statements to Courts and other government agencies.

Certified Copy Documents
Notaries are often asked to "attest documents" This can mean making and notarising certified copies of important documents such as passports, academic certificates or professional qualifications.
