Do you need public notary services? Feel free to call Lisa Denham Law Office at 250-828-2846 to request a notary for your upcoming business venture. Having both signatures authenticated and your official documents validated is one of the most important steps you can take in avoiding fraudulent activity.
All too often, business transactions are entered into without knowing much about the other party. When this is the case, or when the authenticity of the documents is in question, the services of a notary public can prove to be invaluable in assuring that the other party is who they claim to be. When money changes hands, a small amount of time invested in the hiring of a notary public can ensure a successful completion of the business deal.
There are numerous reasons why you should pay for public notary services:
A Notarized Document is Legally Self-Authenticating
A document that is classified as self-authenticating is proof in and of itself that the signers are who they claim to be. This means there is sufficient evidence of authenticity of each signature so that in the event of litigation, the signers of the contract are not required to testify in a courtroom as to the authenticity of their signatures. It’s one of those times when an ounce of prevention is worth the pound of cure.
Notarization is Simple Yet Critical
Many view notarization as a process that requires only a brief amount of time, and therefore must not hold a significant amount of weight. Nothing could be further from the truth. The notary’s duties are multi-faceted, and include ensuring each party signing the document is who they claim to be, requiring legal identification to prove that this is the case. The notary must also use their expertise to determine whether signers are doing so voluntarily or under duress.
Notarization Is Often Undervalued
Most people entering into a ‘gentleman’s contract feel that the services of a notary public are unnecessary. Don’t be too sure. Your best protection against fraud is having the identification of the other party verified, along with the document in question being examined and validated. Since this process takes only a few moments and is inexpensive, it makes perfect sense to have the service performed.
