This answer was rated:

We have a certificate of appointment for our daughter in law who lives in Canada. She is in the process of establishing her title to her deceased husband's property in the UK. The Land Registry require the said certificate to be resealed in England and Wales. Can you advise please how this can be done?

Good afternoong Philip and Sylvia,

You can find notary publics in your area by using the following site:-


They will be able to help you have the document sealed

We have contacted a Notary Public and have been told that we should see our own soicitior because he cannot do it.

Our own solicitor is in the process of dealing with this matter.

Further comments would be welcome.
