What Does A Notary Do?
A Notary’s duty is to screen the signers of important documents for their true identity, their willingness to sign without duress or intimidation, and their awareness of the contents of the document or transaction. Some notarizations also require the Notary to put the signer under an oath, declaring under penalty of perjury that the information contained in a document is true and correct. Property deeds, wills and powers of attorney are examples of documents that commonly require a Notary.
Types of documents that may require notarization? some examples…
- Any important document
- Bring a valid, government issued photo ID with you
- Laws vary by state and some documents may require witnesses in addition to the notarization. In most cases, the notary cannot act as a witness, contact us ahead for more details.
