Mobile Notary Public Services – What Are They?
You might have heard the terms “mobile notary public” and “notarize,” but what do they mean and when would you need one? We can help you find traveling notary services in Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia.
What is a mobile notary?
A notary public is an individual appointed by the state government to serve as an official and impartial third-party witness to the signatures of important documents, like wills and powers of attorney.
A notary public screens signers of these documents to verify and make sure they are who they say they are, and not committing an act of fraud. Also, a notary public makes sure the signer is not being forced to sign and that the signer knows all the details of the document they’re signing.
When you need to get a document notarized, you’ll usually search for a “notary near me” — like a bank representative — who has been appointed by their state government to act as a ministerial official as a notary public. Many places will not notarize all type of documents, such as real estate documents. If you’re unable to travel to a notary office due to schedule or disability, a mobile notary would be of great service to you.
You’ll just need to prove your identity with a valid form of identification such as a driver’s license, passport or any other government issued ID. Sometimes, a notary will even require the participants to sign the necessary documents under oath, under penalty of perjury.
When do you need a notary public?
Documents that typically require notarization are often of the major life-event variety: wills, powers of attorney, deeds, contracts, loan documents and affidavits, to name a few. Requirements vary by state.
