Viv Greene Attorneys

Notary Public, Pietermaritzburg

A Notary Public in SA is an admitted attorney who has passed the competency examination for Notarial Practice and who has been admitted as a Notary Public by the High Court of SA. A Notary Public holds a respected office which is internationally recognised. 


Notarisation by our Notary Public ensures that your document is authentic, that the signatures are authentic and that the signatory was not forced into sighing the documents. We ensure that the documents are in full force and effect.


 Institutions in Pietermaritzburg rely on Notary Publics having faith in important documents such as travel documentation and police clearance certificates. When our Notary Public at Viv Greene Attorneys has witnessed a signing of a document, she applies her own details which include signature, seal and notary commission details.

These stamps and seals serve as a means of verifying the transaction so that others can rely on its authenticity. Notarised documents are very important which is why they have to be signed in the presence of a Notary Public.
