So, what is a notary public?
Have you ever wondered about becoming a notary public? Maybe you have heard about it but don’t know what it is… perhaps you have wanted to become one but feel like there are too many misconceptions about the field. Well, read on!
A notary public is a third-party witness to the signing of legal documents. A Notary helps prevent fraud by checking the signer’s identification and watching for the signer’s willingness to sign the documents. A Notary also makes an official record or “attestation” that can be used to prove that, at a given time, in a given place, specific people executed specific documents in connection with a specified transaction. However, unless authorized to do so, notaries generally do not provide legal advice about the content of those documents.
There are more than twenty-five million notaries in the United States. State governments appoint them to perform a variety of official functions.
We all know that any legal documents must only be signed by people who are who they claim to be. At a Notary’s office, notaries assist you in having your identification verified and certified so you can be sure it is true. Notaries are found in public offices, but they are also present in offices like banks, real estate firms, and hospitals.
Benefits of a Notary Public
In terms of legal documents, the notary helps to assure that the person signing is actually who they say they are by checking their identification correctly. For example, if John Smith signs some forms to get a loan, you want to make sure he has his picture, signature, and other details like height, weight, or birth date.
If you are buying or selling a home, a notary public is an essential part of your real estate transaction. They help ensure that all documents have been properly signed and witnessed.
