What is a notary public?

A notary public is a state-licensed official who acts as an impartial witness to the signing of important documents.

Why do documents need to be notarized?

A notarized document prevents fraud, protects rights, and ensures proper execution. This is because the notary is required to verify a signer’s identity while also reviewing and explaining the documents to ensure the individual understands the documents and is willing to sign.

What types of documents require notarization?

Many types of financial paperwork require notarized signatures—and it’s why we have so many notaries on staff—but it’s not the only kind. Other legal documents like insurance and healthcare forms, real estate transactions, and business applications may also need to be notarized.

Documents that generally require a notary public include:

  • Mortgage documents
  • Building permits
  • Passport applications
  • Affidavits
  • Commercial leases
