What is Notarization?
Notarization is the process whereby a Notary certifies a document. Usually this is done by attaching a notarial certificate to the document or an official stamp. The notarial certificate contains statements of fact or law in relation to the document being certified.
What is a signing agent?
A signing agent is a public notary who is expert in loan closing documents. A lender, title company, or escrow service may hire a signing agent to handle getting documents delivered, signed, or processed efficiently and on time.
Do I need an appointment?
Yes, although we are sometimes able to accommodate walk in clients it is preferable to book an appointment in advance in order to ensure a Notary will be available to see you. This also allows us to ensure we have all necessary documents in advance and that the appointment is as brief as possible for you.
Why do I need to bring proof of identity and proof of address?
One of the Notary’s fundamental duties is to properly identify his or her client. This requirement is laid down by our practice rules and legislation.

Why Are Documents Notarized?
