Function of a Notary Public


A notary public verifies the identities of those signing the document and ensures that all parties involved understand the content of the document. Notarization is a convenient, secure process that offers ease of use when it comes to executing documents. The notary first verifies the identity and signature of each person signing the document, then witnesses the signing and attaches an embossed seal or stamp to certify that the signatories had agreed to its contents. Notarization is an important step in transacting legally binding documents, giving extra assurance that all parties involved have understood and agreed to the terms of the document.
