Hiring a Notary Public is essential for companies looking for services such as loan signing or notarized documents outside of regular business hours or locations. A Notary Public will travel to the client's office or home on their schedule, and is trained to handle many types of documents including real estate, corporate, personal, custody, trusts and power of attorney.
It is important to remember that a mobile notary is not licensed to practice law, prepare documents or provide any legal counsel. Their role is primarily that of an impartial witness to the signing of various documents and legal forms.
Among the services offered by the Tampa Notary Services are:
Witnessing of legal documents
Administering of oaths
Remote document signings/loan closings
Solemnized weddings (Florida is among the few states to offer this service from its certified notaries)
The primary function of a notary is positive identification of the document's signer - verifying that the person who signed the document is, in fact, the person named in it. Notaries are not responsible for the content of the documents.
Identification Required for All Notarization
Each signer must present one of the following valid photo identification cards; must be current or issued with the past 5 years:
State issued Driver's license
State issued non-driver's ID
Driver's license from Mexico or Canada
U.S. Military ID card
Current U.S. passport
Foreign passport stamped by the U.S. INS
10 Guiding Principles
The Notary Public Code of Professional Responsibility. Addressing the common problems, issues and questions encountered by modern Notaries, the Code provides standards by which Notaries entering the 21st century can achieve a heightened professionalism and thereby a greater confidence and respect.
1. The Notary shall, as a government officer and public servant, serve all of the public in an honest, fair and unbiased manner.
2. The Notary shall act as an impartial witness and not profit or gain from any document or transaction requiring a notarial act, apart from the fee allowed by statute.
3. The Notary shall require the presence of each signer and oath-taker in order to carefully screen each for identity and willingness, and to observe that each appears aware of the significance of the transaction requiring a notarial act.
4. The Notary shall not execute a false or incomplete certificate, nor be involved with any document or transaction that the Notary believes is false, deceptive or fraudulent.
5. The Notary shall give precedence to the rules of law over the dictates or expectations of any person or entity.
6. The Notary shall act as a ministerial officer and not provide unauthorized advice or services.
7. The Notary shall affix a seal on every notarized document and not allow this universally recognized symbol of office to be used by another or in an endorsement or promotion.
8. The Notary shall record every notarial act in a bound journal or other secure recording device and safeguard it as an important public record.
9. The Notary shall respect the privacy of each signer and not divulge or use personal or proprietary information disclosed during execution of a notarial act for other than an official purpose.
10. The Notary shall seek instruction on notarization, and keep current on the laws, practices and requirements of the notarial office.
