I’m a new notary in northern California & I have my very first signing job tomorrow. It is a seller’s package dealing with a real estate sale in Nevada. The sellers are currently here in CA.
Thee are 2 pre-printed Nevada Acknowledgements in the package. My understanding is that I can complete those - with corrected venues. Is that right?
Secondly, I’m wondering if I need to ask for the sellers/signers thumbprints for those two Acknowledgements, since the documents (Grant Deed & County Air Quality form) relate to real property.
Yes, venue needs to be changed to County & State of where Notary is executing documents (line through, change & initial , or attach a new certificate). Yes on thumbprints as well. Anything Real Estate related should have a thumbprint.
Thank very much, Khoulihan. First signing completed; Nevada Acknowledgements edited & completed; thumbprints secured. Luckily, very nice signers. Yay!
They WERE attached to specific docs, right? They weren’t just loose acks with no doc affiliation?? (Please say yes please say yes please say yes)…
Right -they were pre-printed on the actual documents.
Just make sure all the CA requirements are met…including that box disclaimer at the top of your certs.
