Need documents notarized? Same Day Process provides mobile notary service for your convenience. On this page, we delve deeper into the role of a mobile notary public.

What Does A Mobile Notary Do?

Before explaining the services provided by mobile notary companies, let’s first explain the role of a notary public.

A notary public is an individual authorized by the government, frequently the Secretary of State, to serve the public as a witness to the signing of important documents. This neutral party vouches for the identity, willingness, and awareness of the other parties involved in the signing of important paperwork. Notaries with proper credentials help prevent document fraud and identity theft by verifying that the appropriate individuals are signing the appropriate documents.

Quite simply, this person stamps a document and signs it, indicating to the court that the signatures on the document are valid and that all parties were present to sign their own names. It is the primary way to authenticate very important documents. 

The fees paid to a mobile notary public vary depending on state laws. Particular areas set a maximum fee. For example, in Washington, DC, notaries may only charge up to $5 per notarial act. For a mobile notary public, travel costs may also apply.

Who Needs Notary Signing Services?

Below are some common examples of documents that may require a notarized signature:

  • Real estate or mortgage transactions

  • Loan paperwork or reverse mortgages

  • Leases

  • Contracts

  • Deeds and bills of sale

  • Registrations

  • Oaths

  • Certificates and licenses

  • Legal affidavits and depositions

  • Formal protests

  • Power of Attorney (POA)

  • Medical authorization for minors

  • Temporary guardianship agreements

  • Promissory note agreements

  • Bank transfer service forms

  • Certified copies of documents

  • College transcripts

  • Passport application documents

A business person might use a notary in their day-to-day dealings as they buy or sell real estate or other businesses. Sometimes a will, trust, and or power of attorney forms require immediate action for a variety of reasons. Perhaps a loved one has fallen ill and doctors believe the person only has a couple of days, or perhaps a couple of hours to live, or perhaps they are unable to leave a nursing home or other facility. In these instances, those who wish to modify their will or select someone as a power of attorney to make medical decisions on their behalf need notary services fast. These situations and countless others are easily remedied by convenient traveling notary services.

In many cases, families are in crisis when their loved one is experiencing extreme medical conditions. The stress is only amplified by concerns related to a will, trust, power of attorney, and more, rendering loved ones crippled with anxiety. The last thing a family wants to do is take their sick or aging parent or grandparent to an office building to have legal documents signed by a notary public or notary signing agent. Fortunately, mobile notary services can help ease the burden during this time.
