A Notary Public is an official of integrity appointed by state government, typically by the secretary of state, to serve the public as an impartial witness in performing a variety of official fraud-deterrent acts related to the signing of important documents.
A Notary Signing Agent (NSA) or Loan Signing Agent (LSA) is a California Notary Public with distinctive expertise and specialized training in notarizing loan and real estate documents. A good signing agent is trained and certified by the National Notary Association (NNA).
Unlike Notaries in foreign countries, a U.S. Notary Public is not an attorney, judge or high-ranking official. A U.S. Notary is not the same as a Notario Publico.
Through the process of notarization notaries deter fraud and establish that the signer knows what document they're signing and that they're a willing participant in the transaction.
There are 4 items a California Notary must do in order to notarize your document...
California Law States:
* For taking an acknowledgment or proof of a deed, or other instrument, to include the seal and the writing of the certificate, the sum of fifteen dollars ($15) for each signature taken.
* For administering an oath or affirmation to one person and executing the jurat, including the seal, the sum of fifteen dollars ($15).
* For all services rendered in connection with the taking of any deposition, the sum of thirty dollars ($30), and in addition thereto, the sum of seven dollars ($7) for administering the oath to the witness and the sum of seven dollars ($7) for the certificate to the deposition.
In addition, to the above fees dictated by the State of California, Notaries need to include traveling fees.
The purpose of an acknowledgement is for a signer, whose identity has been verified, to declare to a Notary or notarial officer that he or she has willingly signed a document.
The purpose of a jurat — also known in some states as a “verification upon oath or affirmation” — is for a signer to swear to or affirm the truthfulness of the contents of a document to a Notary or notarial officer.
No. California guidelines indicate the notary must be able to communicate with the signer directly. Translators are not allowed in this instance. If you need a notary that speaks a language besides English or Spanish, it is best to search online for a notary that advertises their ability to speak that language.
