Frequently Asked Questions
Curious about notary services? We've got answers to commonly asked questions:
A Notary, or Notary Public, is a legally authorised public officer who serves as an impartial witness in various legal and financial transactions. Notaries are appointed by state governments and are responsible for verifying the authenticity of signatures, administering oaths and affirmations, and certifying documents’ legitimacy.
Notarising a document means having a Notary Public acknowledge the document’s signing parties and verify their identities. The Notary confirms that the individuals signing the document are doing so willingly and that their signatures are genuine. Once notarised, the document gains an added layer of credibility and can be used in official or legal matters.
A Notary’s primary role is to act as an impartial witness to document signings. They verify the identities of the signatories, ensure they understand the content of the document, and confirm that they are signing willingly and without coercion. The Notary then adds their official seal and signature to the document, indicating that it has been properly executed.
Notarising a document provides a level of trust and authenticity. It helps deter fraud, confirms the identity of the parties involved, and ensures that the document is legally binding. Many legal and financial transactions, such as real estate transactions, wills, and powers of attorney, often require notarisation to be valid.
Documents that typically require Notarisation include real estate deeds, wills, trusts, powers of attorney, affidavits, and various legal contracts. Additionally, documents related to immigration, finance, and certain government applications often need to be notarised.
Notarisation involves several steps, including verifying the identities of the signatories, ensuring they understand the document’s contents, witnessing their signatures, and attaching the Notary’s official seal and signature to the document. The Notary also maintains a journal of notarial acts for record-keeping.
The time required for document notarisation can vary based on factors such as the complexity of the document, the number of signatories, and the Notary’s availability. In simple cases, notarisation can be completed in a matter of minutes, while more complex documents may take longer.
Notaries and Justices of the Peace (JPs) are both public officers, but they serve different functions. Notaries primarily witness and authenticate signatures on legal documents, while JPs often have broader roles, including witnessing affidavits and certifying documents as true copies. The specific duties of JPs vary by jurisdiction.
Yes, Notaries can notarise foreign language documents, provided they can communicate with the signatories and understand the document’s contents. Notaries must still follow the same notarisation process, which includes verifying identities and ensuring the signatories understand the document, regardless of its language.
