From mortgages, estate planning, affidavits, prenups, and sworn statements, are a wide variety of documents that will fail to hold any legal weight if a notary doesn’t verify your signature.
Using a notary at a brick & mortar store may seem like your easiest option, but there are other reasons to choose a mobile notary instead.
You may be considering two defining factors if you’re trying to find a notary online, location and their validity. Knowing where to find a notary is only half the challenge, reaching them and finding the time to do so is the other.
Using a Notary Service at a brick & mortar store, at a quick glance may seem easy to understand and use. Finding a store offering the service, taking your documents there, providing ID, and completing the process.
However, below the surface, there is a degree of inconvenience that could be frustrating to people who frequently need notary services.
On the other hand, using a mobile notary is just as valid but not as inconvenient to you, no need to reschedule work or travel too far to have your documents notarized.
What’s the difference?
a mobile notary will ensure that your legal documents are signed in the presence of an impartial third-party witness, mobile notaries have an extra level of training and experience to handle sensitive documents such as mortgage loan documents for example loan modifications, those require the notary to be certified as a Notary Signing Agent with additional Errors and Omissions insurance above the minimum coverage required by the California Secretary of State.
Notary Service at a store, you travel to them, stand in line (this can be an inconvinicnece when you are in a rush) & sometimes schedule an appointment convenient to them, then run the risk of your documents not being notarized properly or rejection by the receiving entity, due to lack of experience, knowledge or certification, mistakes can happen.
So Which Type of Notary is Better?
The most important element of notarizing documents is that you find a suitable person. Although UPS, Shipping Stores and AAA provide such persons, their services aren’t always convenient
So, if you would rather avoid traveling to a big box store every time you need to sign a document, using a traveling notary works in your favor.
You remove the associated costs, potential time wasters, and avoid the frustration of traveling back and forth on someone else’s schedule. And if you forget your ID on your way to your appointment – you’re out of luck.
But the biggest benefit is the flexibility that comes with arranging time & location at your convenience
If you find a dependable notary, they’ll arrive at your chosen location outside of office hours including Sundays!
During stress-filled processes such as completing documents when buying or selling a house, this can reduce the strain on your work-life balance.
