Can You Have Any Contract Notarized by a Wells Fargo Notary Public?

Since banks deal with various documents that need to be notarized, people frequently wonder if banks provide notary services.

Can Banks Notarize Documents?

Most banks in America employ notaries public to notarize contracts, which is convenient for their clients. A notary is a government-authorized official whose job is to be an impartial witness to the signing of various documents. A notary’s duties include:

  • Verifying the identities of the signing parties
  • Ensuring that both parties know what they are signing
  • Establishing if the parties are signing the documents of their own free will
  • Identifying a fraud

If the process goes according to the rules, the notary will verify the signatures on the document by marking the contract with a stamp and signing it.

While you’re not legally required to visit a notary for every document, you should consider getting the following document notarized:
