While I am learning new things every day, question came up…
What is the impact if the Notary wrote wrong County(unintentional ) on notary page ? Is there validation by title/lender/signing agencies on documentation.
How it can be corrected or impact to whole documentation and to notary ? // Notary has only E & O
Depending on your state’s rules, only the notary can make the correction, and here in FL I’d need the original document back and would have to revisit signer for a new notarial act with the current date, not the date of the original transaction. If an ack, they merely need to acknowledge they signed it; if a jurat, they’d have to sign in front of me…again.
Not sure what the legal ramifications of an unintentional error are - I’d check state law to see if there’s any fine or penalty provided for in that instance; unintentional errors, I believe, are covered by notary E&O (as opposed to intentional errors or fraudulent certs, which would not be covered)- but, of course, someone would have to prove they sustained a monetary loss in order to collect.
In my state, New Jersey, I’m allowed to strike through and initial… then do it at them bottom or next to it. That’s how I correct any error, most of the time because the TC or escrow have put the wrong County.
OP said the notary put the wrong county
