What Exactly Is a Notary?

A notary public is an impartial witness to the signing of important documents. A notary is generally appointed by the secretary of state of a state government and is expected to follow specific rules in deterring fraudulent acts related to signing official documents. You can check to see if the notary you are using is licensed by looking the notary up in the American Society of Notaries.

There is also a special type of notary public called a signing agent. A signing agent is someone who is a certified as a notary public in their state and who then has additional training in the notarization of signatures for loan documents. Signing agents are often able to provide additional services, such as courier services.

  • State-issued driver’s license
