A Notary Public That Will Come to the Home—Yay or Nay?
With our busy lives, people often can’t make the time to go to the bank, post office, or a notary’s office. Luckily, there is a notary public that will come to the home.
What Type of Notary Can Visit You To Notarize a Document?
Two types of notaries are allowed to travel to their clients to notarize documents:
Both notaries must have a notary commission.
Notary signing agents may also need special licenses to be able to perform certain notarial acts. These notaries notarize signatures on loan documents. They can also complete other tasks, such as:
- Print or deliver the loan agreement to the signer
- Ensure that the document contains the required initials and signatures
- Mail completed loan documents to the company or the lender in question
What Can Mobile Notaries Do?
Mobile notaries can notarize all documents that a regular notary can, including:
- Car titles
- Powers of attorney
- Letters for child travel
- Promissory notes
- Affidavits of domestic partnership
- Bill of sale
- Custody agreement
- Eviction notice
Notarization performed by a mobile notary involves the same steps as a notary service at a notary’s office. Here’s what it entails:
|The Mobile Notary Must||
|Check your identity||The notary will inspect your ID or another form of identification, and you’ll have to answer a few questions to confirm you are that person|
|Determine you will sign the document voluntarily||You must show that you know and understand the content of the document and that nobody is forcing you to sign it|
|Establish you are of sound mind||The notary will refuse to notarize your document in case you’re intoxicated or mentally unstable|
|Watch you sign your document||As the notary’s main purpose is to attest to signatures and be an impartial witness, you need to sign your document in their presence|
|Sign the document||The notary will finalize the notarization of your document by adding their signature and seal and completing the notarial certificate|
How Much Do Mobile Notaries Charge?
Notary fees typically range from $2 to $15. If a state imposes a cap on the fees, mobile notaries’ fees cannot exceed this limit. In most states, mobile notaries can also charge extra for additional expenses, such as travel or administrative.
