What is a Notary Public?
A notary public basically works for the state witnessing notarial writing and signatures on loans and other documents. The idea is that to be a notary public one should be an honest and responsible member of society overseeing others to ensure that they act in the same way. The office of the Secretary of State appoints them in order to be official witnesses of document signings as well as being official witnesses to oaths.
Why would we need to notarize a document?
Notarization is designed to prevent people from being fraudulent in the signing of documents by ascertaining their identity and ensuring that they use their own signature. A Notary Public’s job is also to make sure that the signatories have entered into the agreement of their own accord and not under duress. In essence, a Notary Public is meant to be an impartial witness.
Why use a Mobile Notary Public instead of a loan officer or bank?
A Mobile Notary Public will meet with you and your clients at your convenience and so papers can be signed at any time and at any place. Traveling to a loan office or bank takes time and can be very inconvenient for clients whilst a Mobile Notary Public is there to serve you and fit in with your needs.
What kinds of document need to be notarized?
Any document that requires a commitment from the person signing it needs to be notarized. This will mean that the document will contain the original signature of the signer and a certificate of notarization which will either be attached or will appear on the document itself. Once the Notary Public has filled in this certificate, he or she will apply their seal to it to confirm its validity.
How does a Notary confirm the identity of the signer?
In general, the Notary Public will request some current identification that shows a photograph, physical description and the signature of the signer. This would usually mean a driver’s license or a passport. If the signer cannot produce this identification then they will need two other people with this identification who will swear to their identity.
Does notarization make a document officially legal?
No, it does not. Notarization only ensures that if the document is legal then it will be legally binding. It does this by ensuring that there is no fraud involved, that the signers possess their real identities and that they are not signing under undue pressure or duress.
