About me

I, Peter Nicholas Barnes, known as Nick, have practised as a Notary Public in the Hertfordshire area since 1985 and was a solicitor for over 30 years and have a solid understanding of and extensive knowledge on various legal disciplines.

I’m regulated through the Faculty Office of the Archbishop of Canterbury and am a longtime member of the Notaries Society

I am covered by a Professional Indemnity Insurance for claims up to £1 million.

In the unlikely event that you have a complaint, I confirm that I am covered by a formal procedure and will guide you through the steps that have to be taken.

Data protection

Your personal data will only be retained as is reasonably necessary as required for all Notaries or as required by law. It will not be used for any other purposes or given to any third party.


I only see clients by appointment. The average time is about 20 mins. I need to see proof of identity (passport) and proof of address (driving licence, bank statement or utility bill).
